    Pros

    good stable company, great professional development programs

    Cons

    slow and bureaucratic decision making process

    Advice to Management

    Don't let perfect be the enemy of the good, and stop over analyzing every option. Don't be afraid to take risks.

    Pros

    Good environment, it isn't anything too special but it can be fun at times. Everyone was really inviting to me when I started and always wanted to help.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can seem like management doesn't care about you. I felt like I worked very hard and didn't get a lot in return. Sometimes that can depend on the opportunities available at the time though.

    Advice to Management

    Advice would be to focus more on the training, and make everyone aware of advancement opportunities within the company, it would be great to move up.

    Pros

    Good products which are often leaders in their market space. Well managed company with a strong product development process in place

    Cons

    I would not say there are any downsides. Like most companies, you deal with people, and who you work with has a big impact on your overall job satisfaction. They do have a systematic employee survey process which is taken seriously.
