Career Development

Didn't see a whole lot of upward movement but I can't say it doesn't happen

Overall Compensation for your work

compensation is pretty good actually

Work-Life Balance

It gets hectic at times but you'd expect this anywhere in the IT companies. you just need to prioritize and give yourself a solid head stsart

Job security

just like many IT companies...too many contractors/vendors dependent on quarterly budgets
