    Pros

    * Work/Life balance is respected. Most people do around 40 hours. Overtime is paid.
    * Company shutdown over Christmas to New Years.

    Cons

    * Review process is not transparent.
    * About 70% of people get a 'meets expectations'
    * Can get stuck working older technologies, like Ada, that aren't marketable elsewhere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There seems to be few carrots and sticks in place for professional advancement. That is, it's not widely known which activities are rewarded and those that are punished. Since nobody knows what people got promoted for (or why one got passed over), it's difficult to gage what's truly valued.
