Pros

Easy pace International presence Can work in different offices if you like to move around or travel overseas and have to work remotely. Career opportunities Create severance packages for people who get laid off

Cons

Hard to get promoted though there are many internal opportunities A little bureaucratic Lots of senior folks. If you like young faces, this is probably not the company for you. Senior doesn't mean good engineering either. They can be slow to adapt to new technology. Doesn't pay well
