Pros

Benefits are phenomenal. Free medical, dental, vision for you and all dependents. PPO plan. Cafeteria is one of the best corporate cafeteria's I've seen. Corporate library is well stocked, campus is beautiful. Good if you need a paycheck with minimal effort and lots of free-time.

Cons

Corporate leadership is rapidly losing understanding of market changes and new technology challenges. Company paths with no risk and gets what they risked. Work force is not up to date with cutting edge technologies and gap is slowly growing. Workforce is not up to date with current technologies. Software development group in chaos - too few developers to meet customers changing needs. Ratio of women to men is high for a tech company, but ratio of women to men in management is nearly zero.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None. They don't listen to outside advice.

    Pros

    Most people working here don't care, so if you have any motivation you can feel like you are getting things done. However, everything else about the company is so toxic that this benefit nets out to a zero or a negative.

    Cons

    Salary is well below industry and local area standards
    Raises are practically non-existent, and if you do get them they are often barely at the rate of inflation
    There is absolutely no path for advancement—you will rot in the job into which you were hired
    There is no employee development: yearly reviews and development plans are systematically ignored; training is practically non-existent, both internally and externally; there is practically no funding to participate in conferences or professional development events
    Management is both incompetent and abusive
    Campus atmosphere is stifling; it's a well-manicured cube-farm, but that doesn't make it any less of a cube-farm

    I could go on and on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jack please wake up and make your company better.
