      Pros

      Nothing, that I can currently think of.

      Cons

      I agree with all the negative reviews. I really can't see a developer/engineer wanting to work here. The upper management creates a hostile environment. I also believe that the positive reviews are written by HR. Come on, no one loves working here!
