    I have been working at Verisign full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a great place to work. The engineering and management folks are very competent and team players. Very descent budget spending on employee training and grooming. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Though overall environment is really good and friendly but moving up the ladder is not easy - beside hard work and competency it requires some kind of acquaintanceship as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up doing good work.
