    Pros

    A lot of technologies to chose from when interested in expanding your career growth. Each division is run like a seperate business unit which can host many available jobs.

    Cons

    Because there are so many divisions promotions and yearly ratings may differ largerly because of the group or division you are in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some good technical people are not good managers or supervisors but follow that path to increase there compensation which really hurts the company more then it helps.
