    "Chaotic"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    There are some pretty awesome perks, but this varies from site to site. Some sites have Gyms others have cafeterias. Actually, the cafeteria is why I stay.

    Cons

    Clear communication about what needs to be done and when would be really nice.
    Roles are not clear and this causes confusion, and churning around trying to figure out who's supposed to do what.
    At times I have been asked by management to do someone else's job, and when it is pointed out that it is someone else's job, they expect me to project manage the person whose job it is even though that is not my role.

    Pros

    Nice people, quiet environment, full benefits for medical and dental. Gym on campus.

    Cons

    Not open with a work at home, so there is not much of a work-life balance. Company is ran like its still in the 2000s.
