Good pay, mostly good benefits, good technology most of the time, knowledgeable and competent coworkers. While I was working here I was observing gradual decline in corporate culture, development principles, quality of products and services, level of care about customers. I think it happened around the time when the company went public. The got lately infested with corporate-minded freaks who care less about services quality or customers satisfaction. The only think that they care is how to waste more corporate money to advance own careers and how to fabricate/fake own success ( which frequently is unadulterated fraud) to get a favorite appearance for higher management.
