    Pros

    Laidback work culture, free to explore things on your own. String computer science and networking fundamentals.

    Cons

    Don't expect innovation to come top down. Most innovations within the company has been bottom up, so being a self starter is really important. However, this is really starting to hurt the company at the moment.

    Cons

    Promotions are really hard to come by and the management really plays too hard by giving a lame excuse of budget constraint. Because, It's the number of years you spent in the company, not the kind of quality efforts you put to drive the projects for resolution. Employees most often seem to be distressed with the amount of work they are loaded with and easily tend to feel inspite of working so hard, they aren't getting to the next rung up in the hierarchy.
