Pros

Company is doing very well in the marketplace, creating many opportunities to keep customers happy. Very broad IP and wildly successful in may technical areas. Lots of highly technical expertise home grown in the company!

Cons

Training is not so good. Long history and a large code base creates a burden to ramp up and be productive and successful on projects quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Benefits (especially medical) are costly and not competitive with industry peers.

    Pros

    Nice, helpful and dedicated colleagues. Working time is relatively flexible. The company has aggressive strategy and most staff are proud of the company.

    Cons

    The company is still a creative company. But the policy tends to become more like one of a big company. New problems are emerging.
