    Pros

    good place to learn how to work. lots of smart people. good compensation and perks/benefits. teaches you how to deal with conflict.

    Cons

    culture doesn't quite make sense (if you haven't already been brainwashed). company cares just a bit too much about its own good than that of its employees. shamed into working long hours in most roles. only rewards given are monetary -- don't expect much of a pat on the back for good work.

    Advice to Management

    I think the company comes across as too "selfish" -- you might want to change that. The culture can be a good thing if you have good managers to create a balanced work environment, but there are a lot of managers who are not encouraging enough for employees to grow, and instead, in trying to paint the "truth" kill morale -- weed out these managers.
