    Pros

    Great place to be if want to have a life and work for a large company. You do get pigeon holed into doing one thing so keep your other skills sharp some other way if you are trying to progress your career.

    Cons

    Not very progressive in how they market themselves, but I think it's getting better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall pretty good. There are a lot of you, so be aware of that.
