Pros

-The people you work with will be some of the nicest most pleasant people around.
-The benefits are good - healthcare from day one (that will also pay for fertility treatments), full pay during family medical leave, if traveling you get to keep all your points and miles
-can say no to weekend work and excessive work

Cons

-if you don't say no, you can end up with an endless amount of work that is not humanly possible to finish
-there are other places you can be paid better
-promotions can be political at higher levels

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-stop mixing it up and changing job titles, descriptions and work structures every year - essentially the same job gets done every year, only at every NSM we find out that we have a new title or belong to a new manager or a new group name - it seems like a waste of time to reorganize all the time
-realize when your reports are close to burn out - working nearly 80 hours a week in the field with travel is exhausting. Stand up for your team and tell them to take some time off.

    Pros

    Great Pay
    Lots of projects means a lot of opportunities
    Large pool of employees to draw assist from
    Good flextime policy

    Cons

    Labs could be better managed
    Security could be better
    Organization is so large, you could be lost / sent to the wast-side

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Facilitate your test labs better. Appoint somebody to stock all of the labs. Organize the project teams to work closer to where they sit.
