    Pros

    The company is starting to come around to the lack of security controls around their products. Plenty of opportunity for training and security conferences.

    Cons

    At this time they are very cash strapped and that effects how/who they hire. mostly recent college grads. It's not possible to train these people since the engineers are over worked.
