Pros

Very good health benefits, good amount of vacation

Cons

In my department, not one person in senior management cares about anything else but furthering their own careers. We are constantly told to take risks, collaborate, and be innovative, yet the second anyone goes out on a limb, they are reprimanded for not conforming to standards. Management systems are outdated and uninspiring. Almost everyone I work with is miserable and either feel trapped due to needing job stability or are counting down the days until they quit. I have never seen a workplace with such low morale and fear. HR and upper management try and get the most amount of work out of you while paying you the least amount possible. The amount of money wasted on consultants and incompetency is astounding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees better. I have never seen such unhappy and fearful people. Listen to your employees. Get rid of bad managers.

    Pros

    Very dynamic place with a lot of different things going on. There is always an opportunity to learn and apply yourself on different projects.

    Cons

    Place is not well managed / organized. The attitude is "let's release this product now and fix bugs later", which in reality turns into "time is never given to fix bugs and you will suffer forever to support this product". A lot of bureaucracy. Surprising amount of office politics (too much).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unqualified people should not be promoted to management positions.
