    Pros

    The benefits are very good, especially the medical, dental, and vision plans. Good budget for learning opportunities. Travelling to other parts of the world and working with colleagues. The culture is competitive, making you want to do your best.

    Cons

    Often work nights and weekends because you're always connected. Since 2001, they have yearly layoffs. The managers need to be trained better in order to motivate employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of deadwood managers who don't motivate employees. Or, better yet, send them to manager training so that they have an opportunity to improve.
