Pros

Great company for: - learning techniques - paid advanced education - collaborative work - flexible timing - reasonably convenient workplace environment - good bonus (if paid out)

Cons

Upward mobility, especially if you're in middle management is almost impossible unless you're hitched to the right VP/SVP - who is moving upwards. Stock price (saw it slide from over $30 to around $15 in the 2000s)

Advice to Management

"Be sincere about utterances such as more transparent management practices". "Weed out the culture of kickbacks and cronyisms brought in by the south asian crowd"
