    Pros

    People in general were hard working, nice, meant well. Office space.

    Cons

    Management often seemed to promote undeserved newer employees who hadn't really proven themselves. No real 401 K match, Great employee reviews sometimes equaled no raise???

    Pros

    Technology, support and tools always available to do your job, no questions.

    listen and better communicate the overall goals.
