    if you find any let me know

    Cons

    management does not know how to talk to anyone or manage, they do not work with school or even real life issues, very secretive, and management actually enjoys firing people

    Advice to Management

    go to college and get some education on how to actually manage and motivate your employees

  2. Flexible work environment, but lacks quality engineers.

    Pros

    * There is quite a bit of flexibility in how and where the work is done, as long as it is completed in a timely manner.
    * The pay is average/decent, although I can't speak for others at the company.

    Cons

    * Managment is often unaware of the difference between "quality" of engineering versus "quantity". That is, they believe that throwing more engineers on a job, can get it done faster. However many of these engineers are right out of college and located thousands of miles away in India, which makes joint development projects difficult at best.
    * Amount of vacation time stinks, it takes 5 years with the company to get the 3rd week.

    Advice to Management

    * Look for quality engineers only, and when one is hired that can't cut the mustard, let them go.
