    Pros

    They charge their customers very very high rates, so they pay their employees well. That's what made it worth it.

    Cons

    Organizationally they seem to be a mess. People are in positions to fill a spot and aren't very qualified. Operationally, they are behind the times.

    Pros

    Good benefits, the people, casual dress

    Cons

    Upper Mgmt doesn't have a clue what they are doing. Their answer to their missteps is to lay innocent people off.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the worker bees, not to a bill of good told to you. A lot of great people have been dismissed. Not good for moral.
