    Pros

    Good benefits. Working from home.

    Cons

    Management here is confusing. Lots of senior management positions being filled just because they apply but are not qualified. Very sexist company. Women and minorities beware. Lots of sexual harassment going on in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Train your new management hires! They don't know how to do anything except get mad and spend the company's money!

    Pros

    1. Excellent salary and benefits - it is almost impossible to move to another company that could competitively match these.
    2. Previously, extra effort was rewarded.
    3. Excellent about work-from-home or remote locations.
    4. Excellent for interns and fast-track hires.

    Cons

    1. Resources are being shifted to higher-growth product areas (as they should), but it is leaving other areas too lean.
    2. In lower-growth products areas, there is little hiring locally but more in sister departments in other countries.
    3. If you are the leader of a project within a lower-growth product area, it can be very difficult to get engineers to spend time on your project, since they are spread pretty thin across other projects. At that point, you either take on an inhuman amount of the work yourself, or you don't and you appear unproductive.
    4. Lately, extra effort has not been rewarded, and is almost expected.
    5. Poor work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    1. Focus Focus Focus! If you want something done, let your people focus on it; don't spread them so thin.
    2. Let those engineers become experts and more comfortable in fewer areas. Constantly reassigning them to the hottest program without the right qualifications forces them to press through a natural learning curve, deliver poorer project estimates, and lower quality work.
    3. Better staffing for even the lower-growth product areas, especially if you still want work to be done and in a timely manner.

  11. Great company to work for.
