    Pros

    Great people, lots of interesting stuff going on (not necessarily related to work), like picnics, board games, etc.

    Cons

    At one time, there were no interesting projects for me and I had finally to move to another group to solve the issue.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if managers would care more about what the developers do, and tell them how their solutions affect the result.
