Pros

Good place to start your career right after college, Good job profile, smart co-workers.

Cons

Too much politics, overwhelming work, no work life balance, extra burden of oncall which doesn't count into your weekly accomplish task, its like a side job that you have to take care without delaying your other tasks and projects.

Advice to Management

Need to exercise better judgement while allocation projects and define precise deadline since a person can work at max 12 hours in a day daily.

    Pros

    Money is the only thing and there are similar paying jobs. The sign on bonus is why people stay for a bit

    Cons

    Operations Environment has high turnover
    Overworked
    High Stress
    Due to the clickish nature of upper managers, you may or may not be liked. And, you may or may not hear about it, but it is likely they told someone who told someone.

    Advice to Management

    Learn an effective way to teach your managers to lead, learn the business, and protect your lower level managers from being treated horribly until the quit. You (not we as I no longer like working for this company) are losing talent for no solid good reasons.
