Pros

very transparent - consultants are treated no differently than employees - full access - work can be lumpy but that comes with territory

Cons

Too large and therefore too complex an organization - hard to get a lot done quickly - too many people have to consulted on every step of the way - lot of make work

    Pros

    Good salary, the bonus is nice (when it applies) and work flexibility. Depending on the job but the ability to work from home with a corporate router and phone. Decent benefits for medical and dental. Free onsite gym.

    Cons

    Layoffs (several in last two years 2011-12), outsourcing, many management layers, with a bunch of senior management. Cafeteria food is overpriced.

    Advice to Management

    Don't outsource technical jobs.. it doesn't work very well.
