    Pros

    Great team and manager. Everyone is very supportive and the work is interesting and challenging. Open-door policy with upper management so you can easily communicate any issues you may be having

    Cons

    Depending on the team you are put on you may have a varying experience. Fortunately, the team I was on was great but had some friends go to teams were they weren't happy; this mindset trickles over to other teams and can affect your morale.

      Cons

      Their culture to push the company/projects forward is mainly based on intimidation. Salary is below the average, and after a year they might delay several months to give you your salary review. There is a lot of swearing in communication and lack of respect. Most of the training sessions (if any) are very poor compared to the actual work you need to perform. Management in this department is mediocre, and they lack of...
