Pros

- No pressure, Chill environment
- Coworkers are nice

Cons

The company lacks vision or direction since the S&P take over. The CEO is arrogant and is not afraid to reduce salary across the board at the cost of driving every last talent away. Both of the guys who interviewed me quit within 6 month. People are leaving every week, it's truly sad. To cut cost, the company outsources a lot of development to india. The quality is greatly reduced. Then, as a bandaid fix, they hired Microsoft consultants at 500 dollars an hour, while handing out yearly raise less than the natural inflation rate!
It feels like the upper management are clueless of what they are doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Resign. You guys are so terrible it's helpless!

    Pros

    - At the beginning you learn a lot about financial statements
    - They tried to give you some benefits, like gym membership, office parties once in a while, etc.
    - Good wages and bonuses for the local economy.

    Cons

    - Secretive way of doing stuff, paranoid behavior in regards to use of computers.
    - They expect you to be a cog in the machine. All ideas need to come from above, from some Ivy League kid in the US. Consequently, if you work like a monkey you will advance, even if your qualifications are not the best.
    - Class membership seems to be important (but I suppose this is the same in every transnational corporation).
    - It gets quickly boring and repetitive. A robot could do it, and in fact you start imagining apps that could do the job. Is not like they´re going to implement it anyway. Time to start surfing the Net!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meritocracy. Learn from companies like Google. If somebody has an idea, at least think about it. You are going to try to implement it anyway three years later when there is no way out. Some people are not good as cog machines, and that is why they leave.
