    Pros

    Stable positions with relatively low rate recently for layoffs. Engineers are the most frequently hired employees, particularly new grads. Experienced applicants are not sought out because of cost.

    Cons

    Experienced applicants and employees are not valued because of the higher pay. Instead they are replaced by new grads or those with less than a years experience.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for outside projects.
    Very competent staff, if you have a question, it will get answered.
    Company is big on keeping with current technology, and pushes employees to drive harder.

    Cons

    Very distinct layers of personnel: ie you don't talk to your bosses boss. You talk to your boss and your boss relays your message. Not so easy if you have a problem with your boss.
    Too process driven. There is a process for creating a process. Seriously?
    Feels like a smaller company trying to be a large corporation. Feels like they're trying to grow too fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come down out of the clouds, and get some face time with your employees. Lose some of the formality and let people do their jobs without being micro managed. Also, make the remote employees feel like they're a part of the family rather than a second thought, we do a lot of the hard work in the field and don't always feel appreciated.
