    Pros

    Great products and surrounded by strong contributors with a very collaborative environment. Many career opportunities.

    Cons

    Management misteps, poor strategic direction, lots of management churn and frustration at the leadership level.

    Advice to Management

    Become less quarterly revenue driven and seek to grow company for the long run through a strategic VISION, not reactive scrambling to try and hit the quarterly numbers. Current behavior resembles a company trying to stay afloat instead of a company driving an industry.

    Solid team, colleagues who generally are positive and enjoy what they do. Compensation is good, but not any better than the other area tech firms.

    Location leaves a bit to desired of; there isn't much to do in Herndon compared to the West Coast or New York (or even Tysons/DC). The onsite fitness center isn't the best, but it is a nice touch.

    Continue growing and including career paths for employees.

    Pros

    Broad Spectrum of tasks. Very Innovative and lot of great projects. Great place to get good technical experience. The work atmosphere is relaxed and not too much politics in most groups.
    If you stick around for 2+ years you will get 4 weeks of PTOs and then some more 5+

    Cons

    If the company doesn't meet yearly revenue target no bonus for anyone. Without the bonus the salary is not completive with out similar jobs. If they don't meet these target 2 years in a row lot of competent people leave and it takes forever to refill those positions.
