    Great people, good pay, good benefits. Work/Life Balance is left up to the employees.

    If there's a layoff the workers go first, upper level managers go last.

    Consider laying yourselves off before the workers.

    Pros

    - Work is good, Lot to learn, people are dedicated and hardworking - you get a lot of material to help you - Tuition reimburse - Lot of training to choose from - ESPP program and bonus at year end

    Cons

    - Politics Politics Politics !! - Toxic work culture [not generic][specific to the org I was working ] - Totally Biased towards certain groups/factions - Most of the times, work is randomly assigned and deadlines are given to unnecessarily pressurize you, while it is clearly not relevant .. There will be pressure almost every week, but at the end of the year .. you will ask yourself why the hell, what did I... achieve ? - No transparency , Low morale - work life balance is not encouraged - No-one cares, you feel merely a number - Low Base pay, but probably something is being addressed ,

    Advice to Management

    None !! A lot of Climate surveys were given .. Nothing changes so best is to move on
