Pros

Endless opportunity, easy path up for careerists, access to cutting edge technology, chance to make a real difference in the world's largest markets.

Cons

Endless big-company hell. Filled with careerists and nepotism/friends-and-family hires. Everything takes four times longer than it would in even a mid-sized company.

Advice to Management

Kill about ten X more programs than you already have. Stop investing in stupid crap.

    Pros

    Really, some of the best minds in the field of networking/technology work here.

    Cons

    You need to follow-through a lot at times, to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    A Bit more openness about whats happening would be really helpful.
