      Pros

      Work life balance and no accountability

      No career progression. Politics and not talent is the only way out. Recent spurt in positive reviews by management tries to hide high rate of attrition.

      Company stuck in the 1960s

      Apr 12, 2021 - Anonymous Employee 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Benefits are OK. Work life balance is OK (you don’t have to work hard and will rarely be pushed. If you do work hard its by your own volition and manager will heap praise upon you but it will do little to change your compensation).

      Cons

      Low base pay. No RSUs. No motivation for innovation. Employee part of insurance contribution is high. Grandfather company culture and mentality. Work not rewarded with increase in compensation, rewarded with only words. Experienced same thing with two different managers to realise its a company wide problem. If you are a Software Engineer, beware of this company. It will be a death knell to your career, drive to grow and succeed.
