    Pros

    Excellent Pay and Benefits Package, Development Opportunities

    Cons

    Absence of work-life balance, "Throw into the deep end" mindset for developing people, Lack of guilt-free vacation leaves

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that whatever is shared by top management is cascaded down to the ranks (e.g. reduce work volume through proper planning). There's so much talk about process improvement, pushing the needle, etc. but it's reached the point where it's not clear if management cares about the people at all or if it's all just numbers.
