    My experience was very positive, largely due to the VP I reported to while I worked there.

    Pros

    People are friendly.
    Close to Starbucks.

    Cons

    Slow in doing things.
    Too much politics.
    If you enjoy working for an old company (technology and infrastructure) this is the place.
    Working on Layer 1 is boring and the chance for you to get a better job elsewhere is small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice needed they know what need to be done but will they ?.

    Pros

    A lot of talented people still here. Enjoyable to work with. Interesting technology.

    Cons

    Dedicated effort by upper management to out-source and off-shore everything. Brutal s/w delivery schedules. Layoffs routine. No effort to recruit/hire new/young people. No one knows where anything is headed. Most people are looking for the exits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're building an environment with no discernible future for any of your employees.

    Pros

    friendly environment, onsite cafeteria, onsite temp agency manager, most supervisors work well with employees. The work place is clean and tidy. a very nice working environment.

    Cons

    employees don't advance in position to often, temps are kept for extremely long period of time without being hired in or given the opportunity to be hired in. Raises are rare and when given it is usually small and rarely make a difference on the employees paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize Talk to Power, hire the temps in as full time employees. Have better raises and give raises on at least a yearly bases.

    Executive leadership is taking real steps towards improvement. Relaxed atmosphere in the work place, and a balanced work/life approach. Many employees have been there for decades, so retention is very good.

    Many employees have been there for decades, so change is difficult to come by sometimes.

    Would like to see a younger office culture, more professional dress, and programs to help employee career growth.
