      Pros

      Reasonable compensation. Performance oriented. Opportunities for growth. Excellent utilization of global community of professionals. Strong technical communities. Large budget projects.

      Cons

      Technical staff can get siloed off into one technical area with minimal exposure to other interesting technical areas. PM and PC team take majority of management responsibilities that might be availbale to technical staff working for smaller company.

      DO NOT APPLY TO THIS PLACE. WORST PLACE EVER

      Pros

      The team members are super nice and genuine.

      Cons

      Senior management blindsides the main team and takes irrational decisions. For these heartless people, you are nothing more than dispensable trash. The senior management does not care to hear your side of any story. They will take decisions unilaterally.

      Pros

      You'll be treated like a number and then pushed out the door when you start making noise. I was bullied there also by senior field staff.

      Cons

      Too many to list. Low wage, no work life balance, harassment, toxic work place

      Pros

      Good entry level experience. They train you from the bottom up.

      Cons

      Management doesn't care about their employees. Field techs are underpaid. There is no work life balance. They move you up to different levels of supervisory but no pay raise unless you demand one.
