In a technical community that you are never turned down for asking for help

Senior Research Scientist (Current Employee) Austin, TX

Pros- One of the few long-established corporations truly strive for technical innovation and refuse to reduce to a commodity business.
- Its highly diversified product portfolio contributed to good job security, especially during the late economic downturn.
- You can always find someone who is knowledgeable in an area you are interested in. They ALWAYS offer help. I've heard this is not true in many other large companies.
- Seminars and classes keep you fresh.
- Good compensation and benefits.

Cons- The downside of diversification is that human and capital resources are stretched thin in some areas. It can be hard to get things done effectively when you don't have a critical mass.
- Stability can mean less dynamic, but it is very different from one business section to another.
