    Pros

    Very open/approachable management. Good communication from senior management on why the company does what it does. Good work-life balance, you will work hard but when you need a break you will get it. Excellent health care. Challenging work. Good at providing opportunities to try different jobs.

    Cons

    Performance can be more influence by the visibility of the projects on which you work, than on the performance on the job you have which may not be that visible. Making significant change is difficult. Aversion to risk at middle management has increased with the size of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Not every project is on management's radar. Reward/recognition should be more driven by performance to expectations of the job at hand, not by what is most visible to management.

    Pros

    Company offers competitive pay with great benefits. They always try to provide a work life balance when possible.

    Cons

    Over the last few years, raises have been small and the extras are not as good years before.

    Advice to Management

    Management structure may be getting to large, afraid of creating too much bureaucracy.

    Pros

    flexible and good life balance. Have good health insurance and every 4 years employee can get 1 month sabbatical. Every 7 years can get 2 months sabbatical.

    Cons

    The salary is just normal. Some of my co-workers doesn't work really smart. And I don't like the food in the cafe.

    Pros

    Good culture, nice people, great atmosphere, nice benefits and bonuses, tough work. Easy to switch careers within the company. Good leadership from managers and higher ups. Lots of networking opportunities. Great work life balance if you want that.

    Cons

    Need to guide your own development, have to be a self-motivated person, work is on the duller side, campus is outdated and cube farm, could easily get stuck here for 20 years or more if you aren't careful. Also, bad food in the cafeteria.

    Advice to Management

    None really, its a pretty good job overall, I am satisfied with it.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, funds for team builders/quarter activities and free coffee/soda/fruit.

    Cons

    Pay is not as competitive, there is low morale due to recent job cuts

    Advice to Management

    Re-orgs/cuts should be implemented swiftly and transparently. Having multiple rounds/rumors keep employees in suspense and is not healthy.

    Pros

    You get to work on the most advanced technology in the world. Compared to most companies there are a lot of nice benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Layoffs every couple of years. Only have to worry if you get a bad annual review or low stock rewards for that year though.

    Advice to Management

    I would say most of the managers and GLs have no people or leadership skills
