      There is no work life balance. Everyone is working on all cylinders all the time. Making sure you communicate project priorities to leadership is key. CYA

      Pros

      Great schedule and work/life balance

      Cons

      Got rid of a ton of benefits in the last year with no positive additions to make up for it. New building is horrible layout, and people are dreading it. They have made one thing clear: you should consider yourself lucky to have a job, so don’t complain. Used to be a place people spent their entire careers, not anymore. Has become a revolving door of people

      Good benefits and work life balance

      Cons

      Terrible leadership. The leadership is not in touch with its people, nor do they have a real understanding of what is going on due to no one will give them a straight answer in fear of being eliminated.

      Great Work-Life Balance and Compensation but Lacking Loyalty

      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Work-life balance, compensation, culture among individual contributors is awesome. Supervisors and lower-level management is usually supportive and empowering.

      Cons

      Supervisors and lower-level management is very inconsistent (years of experience and how hands-on or -off they are). The same employee is often treated/recognized differently between managers leading to inconsistent feedback and direction.
