    Pros

    The pay is really good and that is why most people stay. Technology is always fun to learn and there is PLENTY of opportunity to TRAVEL.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is horrible. Expect to work every day on vacation. Expect to travel a lot. Layoffs have been constant for the last 7 years. Most people are burnt out and unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    1 billion dollar write off for Sony Pictures. Someone dropped the ball on that one. I would say there need to be more check and balances in place.
