They will take good care of you

Software Engineer (Former Employee) Lawrenceville, GA

ProsStable company that will take good care of you as long as you "take care" of them (i.e. don't do anything bad)

ConsTypical large company - slow-moving, lots of politics, and 1-2 reorgs every year - so you'll go through many different managers

Advice to Senior ManagementGet to personally know your employees - they are human, not just worker robots. My favorite managers were the ones who actually cared that you had a family and know that a job is just a job.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
