    Pros

    They hire off Craigslist, so landing the job is pretty easy.

    Cons

    Nepotism galore. Unless you are a master of navigating office politics and nepotism, your career will certainly run aground while here.

    Lot of interesting projects

    Pros

    Different clients means different technical problems to solve. Lots of learning of new technologies and applying on the job. My reporting chain really pushed for a quality 40 hours a week and that's it. So good work life balance there.

    Cons

    You are creating stuff for another company. Once the contract is done, the thing you created is taken away by the client and sometimes destroyed.

    Lot's of opportunities to learn.

    Feb 6, 2014 - Software Developer in Palo Alto, CA

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    This is a consulting agency, so most get the opportunity to work on a myriad of projects. As a result, one can pick up a lot of different skill-sets along the way. Can get busy at times, but overall the work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Acquired by a large company (Alliance Data Systems / Epsilon), which has led to a lot of recent turnover.

    Pros

    The location was good and I really enjoyed the other designers. Free lunch on Fridays. Booze always in the fridge.

    Cons

    No variety in projects which is what was absolutely promised in the interview. The clients and management were nightmares.
