Pros

Exposure to a broad range of IT areas - SD, storage, big data, security, mobility, collaboration tools

Cons

Lot of politics and limited room to grow unless you are aligned with the key set of people - not a meritocracy at all. If you have a tenure with the company then more opportunities for you

Advice to Management

Invest in horizon 2 businesses and not just money but also enabling the teams especially the go-to-market teams
