      Pros

      Good solid company to start your career with.

      Cons

      Not much room or encouragement to move around within the company or to move up. Also changes structure too much. Hard to get any traction on large projects with upper management always changing.

      Pros

      salary was decent and immediate coworkers were great

      Cons

      CEO and upper management didn't know how to handle our division and we were sold off like pawns. Hardworkers carried the load while there were multiple individuals that did little to nothing day after day without a word being said to them about their performance.

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Great people, pay is competitive, and plenty of opportunities if you are flexible and a hard worker. Working from home is possible occasionally with manager approval.

      Cons

      Lack of communication from upper management, recent salary freeze, and cuts to bonuses are difficult to swallow. Meager vacation time (10 days PTO until you reach your 5th year at the company) is very disappointing.
