    Pros

    Steady employment, large/high risk/high profile projects

    Cons

    Politics dictate promotions in most instances

    Advice to Management

    Compensation packages are below market value, increase your backlog, figure out a way to keep employees engaged/moving upward, be aware of the fact you are being lied to more often than not - especially when it involves the subordinates of your direct reports

    Team is very helpful and willing to teach. Usually give me responsibilities you would never think an intern would get. Overall a great experience
