      Very little to do

      Pros

      Benefits are good, flexible schedule.

      Cons

      Unless you're in a small team or you work directly for the boss, you need to find, beg, borrow, or steal to get some work. Supervisor is clueless about future projects and talks in circles. Utilization is everything and if you don't find your own work then it's counted against you. Not a good place for a just out of school graduate. Many of the PM have no patience to teach or tell you to "Google it". Concerns about work distribution go ignored. I'd not recommend this place for anyone starting out.

      Pros

      Working environment is productive yet relaxed. Benefits and salaries are good. The culture is great. It can be demanding on the higher level staff but our team approach is effective and less stressful then other work environments I’ve been in.

      Cons

      A difficult thing industry wide is finding good people. We have had good luck building our teams but finding the right people in today’s market does take a lot of effort and time.
