    Pros

    Wonderful people, robust benefits package. For a roughly 2000 head firm feels much more intimate

    Cons

    Company is severely segmented. PM teams are almost autonomous. Base salary very low for industry. Seems as though HR or firm culture does not support movement within.

    Pros

    Overall company is great. Good benefits and culture.

    IT is a mess. Morale is low as many people have quit/been let go ever since new IT management took over. Everyone is scared and looking over their shoulders.
