      Fluctuates between a life-life balance or a work-work balance, but rarely a work-life balance.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - very flexible work schedules, Fridays are very slow and relaxed which is nice - remote positions are available - great diversity and a lot of women in leadership positions - Room for creativity and new innovations but rarely resources and buy-in to make them happen. - no unlimited PTO BUT flexible work arrangements and 9/80 schedules allow for hours to be met up front and long weekends without using your PTO - very friendly environment and overall a positive work-environment

      Cons

      - outdated pay scale and inconsistent pay per title between sectors and individuals within the same position - unspoken understanding that you have to leave the company to get a pay bump - promotion/compensation bonuses are entirely subjective depending on your relationship with your manager - outdated hierarchical model/org structure - the company preaches agile but not known to "flip the org chart" as business owners/executives opinions/ subjectivity influence and dictate new features and innovations in programs that are not directly involved with external customers.

      Pros

      Great pay, good management, awesome benefits, really just a superb company.
