Pros

Industry leading tech, and good work-life balance

Cons

need to know how to play to get promoted, hard-working will not make you stand out given 10 people work on a project which only need 3 workforces...

    Short. I was only employed there for two months before management decided to go their separate ways.

    Pros

    If you are able to hit the ground running on your first day and able to get through training quickly than this is the career for you.

    Cons

    The team that I was in wasn't sociable and none of the interns on the team said that they had a fun time working there.

    Advice to Management

    It would probably help the new hire to not be thrown to the wolves in the middle of a project.

    Pros

    Good company to work for, get to work on leading technologies. Can get a fair work-life balance. Benefits are also good.

    Cons

    Being a market leader and a huge company, growth opportunities are not that great. Lately, too many reorgs happening in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not do re-orgs every now and then, its really has a negative impact on employees. A good leadership strategy, does not need to have re-orgs too often.
