    Pros

    You can make many friends
    Close to home if you’re from the north
    Amazing view out of the window if you’re lucky to have such place

    Cons

    - No bonuses if you’re lucky you’ll get a promotion of 1-2%
    - You should report to your manager that you’re late even if you are literally late by only single minute
    - over crowded offices
    - class room and public spaces were replaced by more cubics even though the building can host more offices
    - Very poor work life balance you will work at least 60 hours a week in average and it would NOT look exceptional
    - You can get promoted only if you have a “good” relationship with your manager
    - Due to the matrix management, no one will notice you or what you do unless you keep sending “please say thank you” emails to managers
    - each of your managers tells a different story
    - You should expect to be on call everyday and should answer and work during the night
    - Sickness leave should be taken only if approved and you should specify the reason of sickness even though it’s prohibited by the law
    - Managers care only about their position nothing more
    - opportunities are not equal for everyone
    - trophies and awards are awarded to employees who keep flattering their managers and not by their actual performance
    - politics is the only skill you need
    - most of the employees don’t have computer science or related degrees while hired as engineers

    Advice to Management

    - Take as much as possible courses in management and employee rights
    - Keep in mind that employees have their own and private lives
    - give employees freedom
    - you should hire smart people to tell you what to do and not to tell them what to do
    - believe in your employees
    - not everyone is a lier

    Pros

    None, they is really nothing positive to say they suck. I have to put 20 words but nothing positive to say.

    Cons

    Crap raises and bonuses
    No clear defined plan on anything
    Software is same crappy software they been selling for years just rebranded
    Only fix stuff to pass audits
    Love to fake customers and tell them work is being done in United States and reality it's done in India by a low skilled workforce
    Make a habit of stealing software and never pay the vendor
    Hold employees responsible to get billing code but never back u on anything

    Advice to Management

    Decentralize some control from the mother ship in Israel. All the people that are left after layoffs are yes men.
