ProsI worked with some of the best people ever in this company, free with knowledge sharing, professional in their fields, and tons of fun socially.

ConsThey over-reacted to Sarbanes Oxley and locked the company down so tight with process that they squelched creativity. Micro-management abounds. The bad economy creates a tense atmosphere with annual layoffs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
