Pros

Great talent, great people to work with. Depending on the team and the technology, it can be a fun place to work.

Cons

Too much middle management, to big of a company, unable to react to the market, underpaid. Unable to decide what it wants to focus on. Annual reviews needs improvement and little to no guidance on how to position oneself for success. Little to no work life balance.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees, practice what you preach. Provide a real career path to your employees without it being in Management. There is too much of a buddy system, if you not part of it the path of success is limited. Evaluated purely based on numbers and not work ethic.

    Pros

    Large size and global footprint. Products and services offered are of high quality. Very talented team of people.

    Cons

    The management team is not ver talented and do not treat employees well. The company is in a lot of trouble with the mistakes made over the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people well - they are your only asset.

  2. Good compensation but too much of red tape leading to loss of business

    Pros

    Colleagues respect your time.
    Awards for excellent work.
    Work from home.

    Cons

    Red tape leads to additional work, re-work and at times loss of business.
    New ideas take longer to be institutionalized or are lost in the milieu of bureaucracy and complacency.

    Advice to Management

    Remove bureaucracy at all levels. Other organizations are leaner and have quick approvals and processes in place that will help business.
