Pros

A lot of my co-workers are very kind. About half of them are very talented and have good work ethics.

Cons

No opportunities here, unless your boss favors you. Your performance doesn't matter, even if you consistently perform very well and receive good rating every year, you don't receive any salary increase for 4 to 5 years. If you want a promotion of your job title, wait at least 10 years. Bad compensation and benefits plans, salary is lower than industry average, employee stock purchase plan only gives you 5% discount (The other companies give 15% discount!!). Management doesn't know what are the real issues within the organization, they hired some consultants to modernize the IT department, those people don't know how to manage and motivate people, instead they turned a place that used to be very friendly into a very negative and hostile environment.

Advice to Management

Outsourcing to India is a bad idea. Look at what happened to those companies that were pioneers in outsourcing! The fact that a lot of best talents chose to leave the company proves that you made a wrong decision. Also, the senior management enjoyed substantial increases in their compensation packages in the past 5 years while we received no salary increases. What a shame!
