Pros

Support for working remotely.
Good Opportunities for advancement.
Great people and talent, access to great industry experience.
Excellent market reputation in some lines of business.

Cons

Lack of corporate direction since Fidelity/Metavante merger.
Pay, bonus, and benefits decreasing.
Managed like a portfolio of small companies, yet expects to act as one.

Advice to Management

Address falling morale in high performing areas. Pay attention to competing with technology service providers and software companies to satisfy customers and employees, not industry averages.

    Pros

    There are some truly genuine people around, who make working there bearable and even sometimes delightful - in a decidedly after-hours application.

    Cons

    There are no consequences for generally and unanimously undesirable behavior. Meaningful initiatives quickly become buried under fourteen feet of paperwork and poorly conceived processes. The endless shifting of direction of entire departments on the fly creates perpetual crisis and confusion. At the end of the day, the reward for an oustanding effort is less failure (while the reward for no effort at all is that your problems inexplicably become someone else's). Product Managers own the responsibility for everything they can't possibly change or impact. See also: "patsy".

    Advice to Management

    There's more strategy in determining what you will do well or better than anyone else (and therefore, what you will not do), than pursuing a mantra of being all things to all people and failing on all counts.
