Pros

Great office location, relaxed working environment, smart people, teams that get work done on time and with good quality. Not much overtime required.

Cons

Not much training. Innovation is "encouraged" but most decisions come from top down. Cross site development is difficult. Projects take sometimes years to complete / ship.

Advice to Management

It seems like the organization is always undergoing changes in management and structure. After several times of going through change and not seeing much difference I am wondering if there is really much benefit to restructuring so much.

    Pros

    Good pay. Good benefits. Some good people. Office has a gym/games room.

    Cons

    Aggressive performance metrics based on closure of customer incidents. All incidents are counted the same regardless of difficulty. This leads to some employees working the system by insisting all customers create new incident's for each small question.

    Mandatory "on call" overtime which is payed at a flat rate regardless of how much work is actually done.

    No raise in 2 years.

    Rare to find opportunities to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Put more reliance on customer satisfaction, and less on incidents closed. Make after hours support optional.
