    Pros

    Steady paycheck and nice people.

    Cons

    It's a cubicle life with little growth. Not sure why so many people are hired. Much could be streamlined. Management doesn't really like their employees. It's very hierarchical. Even if you have a decent degree, management is always right. Your opinion is not valued.

    Smart people but not great at managing people or open to ideas.

    Excellent culture, generally high morale. Company is pursuing innovation with support from firms like IDEO.
