Pros

Good fame
Good money
Free food/shuttle etc

Cons

You never have a career path.

You'll need months to figure out how to grad an easy number through the legacy system, needless to mention about the reviews, permissions etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn from microsoft, cuz you are the microsoft of 2000 now.

    Pros

    Awesome food, great salary, wonderful coworkers. Lots of room for a self-starter to advance. Promotion can be quite rapid if you are determined and this is your goal. None of the cost/benefit approach to IT that you see at a lot of other companies.

    Cons

    Management can be clueless or absent at times. It can take a lot longer to get things done than you expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove blocks to rapid development and mandated platform use. Be more open in communication, particularly in explaining the reasons for controversial decisions.
