    Pros

    NDS is full of very talented developers wanting to make a difference while developing cutting edge services

    Cons

    Large public organisation means it can be slow to react and upper level management/government don't understand software development process. They can also focus on key deliverable features at the expense of a long term plan (due to lack of understanding )
