    Great opportunities for advancement. Senior management more focused on bookings targets than profitability.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsExcellent compensation and benefits. Great opportunities for advancement. Poised to capture additional market share.

    ConsSome antiquated back office systems make it very difficult to gain insight into the business. Surprising lack of focus on profitability and cash flow (bookings oriented). Matrix management causes lack of accountability and an inability for senior management to make decisions.

    Too many changes going on.

    ConsToo many org changes recently have left people unsettled.
