    Pros

    The people/campus are mostly nice. The company seems to have an optimistic fiscal outlook.

    Cons

    Project management often seems misguided, resulting in rushed/error-prone work and a lack of necessary overhead. Computer management can be frustrating to infuriating, and a lack of transparent leadership keeps teams guessing what they'll be doing in the near future. Chronic problems with inefficiency sometime seem to be improperly treated or ignored. The culture can also be somewhat dismal (depending on the team).

    Advice to Management

    Sincerely appreciating and acting upon the concerns of subordinates I believe will improve quality and turn-over.
