    I have been working at Leica Geosystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Plenty of PTO if you have worked here for years Opportunities to try out development role

    Cons

    There is a lot of politics going on internally , and co-worker will try everything to throw you under the bus if you want to promote above them Conflicts of interests /different ideas on completing tasks can quickly escalate to personal attack at work place on a daily basis This is still a toxic work place of its own kind currently: people bad mouth each other behind their back, "back-stabbing" can be at a whole different level that you cannot expect Human Resource is at its headquarter Atlanta, Georgia, so basically if you work here at the software development division , forget about HR, nobody care your problem, nobody will help you, you are on your own, simply as it...
