    Pros

    Company has good benefits, good work life balance, nice office layout

    Cons

    Too many org changes within the past 2 years. Roles were shuffled and incompetent people were placed in leadership roles that were not leaders. Most of these guys were all talk and no action. Left not because of the company, but because of people.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the people that actually do the work and deliver. Don't fall for the guys that are all talk but have no idea what really goes on and how things work.
