Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  San Jose, CA
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA

Pros

Big company, employee-oriented, work-life balance, challenging projects for career. Emphasis on employee development and employee education. Great benefits and perks.

Cons

No career growth for an ambitious individual. The mid-level management team comprises of very long term employees who are planning to retire from their positions. As a result, the younger employees who work for them have no opportunities to move up the ladder.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change and adaptability are very good for any company's culture. The younger work force should be encouraged to plan and implement their innovative ideas. "This has worked well in the past and we shouldn't change anything" attitude by upper management needs to change.

Recommends
