    Current Employee

    A good organization, but suffers from excessive politics and fear of change

    Pros

    the hours are very reasonable, and you can work from home. The technology is a bit dated, but is better than other places I have worked. You get to work around a lot of other developers and very smart people. There is a strong commitment to developing things locally, with off shoring only in certain limited areas.

    Cons

    The culture is very meetings heavy, easily eating 2 - 4 hours out of every day. this is can be extremely frustrating. its also really odd for an organization that calls itself "agile". There is a lot of fear of change and a belief that more meetings will reduce risk. lastly, priorities shift and change sometimes too quickly, which result is wasteful interruption. Between the excessive meetings and constant priority changes, I sometimes wonder how any work gets done.

  4. 2.0
    Former Employee

    Pros

    If you know someone at the top, you will do fine.

    Cons

    Environment is full of distrust, silo'd departments, imbalances in power based on personalities. Some folks do not have technology backgrounds but are in leadership positions (in a technology company). This leads to subpar decisions regarding investments and solutions. Business model is heavy on the services side, light on the solution side.
