      Pros

      Great, friendly people & teams coupled with interesting problems to solve help make it a fun and challenging environment to work in. As a software team in a hardware-centric company, its delightful to see the company starting to add significant investments and resources to this area.

      Cons

      For some existing projects where there is a high dependency on offshore assistance, the ability to collaborate as efficiently and effectively with other local teams is impacted.

      Pros

      Good pay, benefits, etc. Work mature employees usually left alone. Frequent surveys to determine what actions are needed to make its employee's work environment better and attempts to. Made a noticeable effort to hire with more diversity. Made big changes for the Covid Pandemic to ensure it's employee's safety like closing office, WFH, providing supplies and equipment, frequent online activities and meetings to avoid disconnect.

      Cons

      Fast pace high pressure environment. Schedules constantly shortened without notice. High expectations for results but that is the trade off with then top notch support. Like most companies, a few people there reaping the benefits and contributing very little.

      Pros

      They treated their co-ops very nicely. Gave us lots of experience in industry, and gave us space to explore our own interests.

      Cons

      Had some issues with HR where they took all the co-ops aside and told us we ate too much food at company events (which we didn't like, since lots of people ate a lot of food).
