Good, Bad, and Ugly of Large Corporation

Technical Lead (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsStability and compensations are pretty good. Plenty of resources.

ConsEmployee evaluation is based on how good s/he writes or tells to the manager, and her/his peers tell to the manager. Social networking and politics are almost a must to survive, Rating system encourage back-stabbing among peers, and turf guarding.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore effort in knowing each individual contribution. Less turf guarding. Probably replace/compliment individual based rating with team based ratings.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
