    Pros

    Good work and life balance. People are diversified and generally very nice. Study support is very good too.

    Cons

    It is ver political at the senior level. If you are in the wrong crowed, you could be out of the door very soon.

    Pros

    Training and development was the best I've ever seen. They offer courses on a variety of subjects that help develop your career path within the company.

    Cons

    Salaries tend to be below market and inconsistent. Top heavy. Too many managers and not enough people to do the work. Management constantly changing course and restructuring. Regular employees end up working 12+ hours per day trying to keep up with changes while worried about job security.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many of you.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for growth and learning. People were interested for my professional growth. Upper management was extremely nice for me.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work seemed tedious. While the project I worked on was really cool, I feel like sometimes I was doing something separate from the team.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working there. Great people. Some opportunity for advancement. very low turnover. Put emphasis on employee training and development.

    Cons

    While there are some opportunities for advancement, the opportunities are limited. It is like everywhere else...the company wants to do more with less.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your employees and remind them that they are appreciated. Promote from within more so than looking externally.
