    Pros

    It's a huge company, so when there is plenty of work, it's easy to move sideways and slightly up to different departments.

    Cons

    Little flexibility is given to engineers to do new and/or interesting work. You pretty much get pigeon-holed in to doing just one thing. The only way out is to change departments.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your engineers market value. When an engineer starts at a low pay, don't keep him at a low pay just because to give him a big increase is against HR rules.

    Pros

    - 9/80 work week
    - Good pay and benefits
    - Long-term employment -- job security
    - Opportunity to work on new technologies like SOA, UML, RSS, etc.
    - Great co-workers

    Cons

    - Not enough work to gainfully employ all personnel
    - Poor personnel management -- some people remain busy while others are not
    - Little to no focus on professional certification or professional development
    - Too many software engineering tools used in an ad-hoc manner

    Advice to Management

    - Stop reorganizing
    - Collaborate and distribute work across locations -- too much work is concentrated in some areas, while others are laying people off.
