    Pros

    Has a Roth choice in their 401K.

    Cons

    Nothing ever gets better. Same mistakes by upper management. Quality of new hires is getting bad. Always running out of materials. Way to much overtime. Upper management thinks we have no life, but they are never there on the weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Bring up the pay and get better employee's. Start a training program. Stop the micro management.

    Pros

    Brilliant people, incredible culture! A commitment to their employees and the overall satisfaction of clients. Cutting edge technology at velocity.

    Cons

    None at all! They have a top to bottom comprehensive commitment to their people above all else. They provide tools needed to succeed.

    Keep up the great work!

    Smoke area is far to walk and the break room could use an update.

    Management listens openly to suggestions for improvements and are open to change. Great benefits and vacation time.

    Pros

    401K match by company, excellent benefit package, small company so you have an ability to make an impact on improvements.

    Cons

    Strict attendance policies, so don't apply if you have attendance issues. They expect you to show up to work on time and everyday. Not a bad thing, but seems like many people these days have trouble doing this.
