    Pros

    The people here are great. My team is knowledgeable and we with well together. The management team trusts in the work we do and definitely don't micromanage which is nice.

    Cons

    To be honest the pay could be better especially compared to some of the competitors in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work but be mindful of what competitors are offering to retain the talent you have and entice the talent you'd like.

    Pros

    Diverse company. Unique projects. Depending on your supervisor this company can be a great choice. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    A lot of your experience depends on your direct supervisor and/or PX. If they don’t go to bat for you don’t expect progression. There is definitely an “in” group. If you are a part of it you're definitely be on the fast track for progression in your career. And if your wondering “am I in the in group” your probably not. In speaking with some of the veteran members, it’s sad to here a senior team members say “this place is definitely cliquey and I get left out”.

    The favoritism is EXTREMLY obvious but no one speaks up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the favoritism and judge employees by work out put and work load.
