    Pros

    In no particular order

    1. Good opportunities for education and training and even certification.

    2. Training you get from working here can be very portable if you choose to leave. Some of the skills you learn here are in demand in other places.

    3. Managers are terrific people and they really do support the people who report to them.

    4. You get to work with some fantastic, brilliant people.

    5. Good starting salary

    6. Terrific benefits package.

    Cons

    In no particular order

    1. Salary is flat. You can go years between raises, if you get one at all.

    2. Very little opportunity for career growth within the company. Good career growth if you take what you've learned working here and use it to get hired somewhere else.

    3. Support organization lost work at home option. No more remote workers allowed. Maybe individual managers might allow it a few days a week, but no more full time work at home.

    4. Lack of transparency - upper management makes a major change that affects an entire organization and it's only communicated to people by word of mouth from their managers. Nothing official ever communicated to the affected staff.

    5. No investment in their staff, choosing instead to acquire companies and pay facilities to house people who were working effectively from their homes.

    Advice to Management

    If you send out employee satisfaction surveys, remember to put some free form comment boxes for people to express themselves. Answering a bunch of questions on a scale of 1 to 10 will not tell you what you need to know.

    Consider investing more in your employees. Would be nice to know that you are aware of having a support organization, I'm afraid you do have to care about employee morale

    Pros

    In software development, job environment is generally stable with opportunity to work on different products & roles. Remote work from home or work from one of the several globally distributed offices is generally allowed. In the benefits, Medical plans are pretty good.

    Cons

    HR practices are generally geared only towards legal compliance activities & protecting the management & company from lawsuits otherwise it's indifferent towards team building & other fun activities. In the long term salaries stagnate & raises are painfully low.

    Advice to Management

    It shouldn't be such an impersonal atmosphere for the employees. The employees should feel connected & cared for. "Leadership is about people. Period. " -Gary Kelly, CEO Southwest Airlines.

  10. NO COUNTRY FOR YOUNG TALENTS.

    Pros

    Amazing flexibility and great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Less than market comp packages, no real career growth and sub par product teams.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in true R&D and build great products. Hire great people by quality not the cheap talent by numbers, otherwise you will end up in law suits (remember Oregon state:) ).
