    "mundane but overall takes care of you"

    Pros

    generally a friendly work environment; the company tries to care for the employees in general and is reasonably flexible to meet employee's personal life needs. Very technical tries to hire the best.

    Cons

    no growth -- a dead end job from that perspective. Management is very technical but lacks leadership and management skills. A very top-down structure. Too much red tape at times.
