Pros

Great people that will push you and give you opportunities to see things in a new way.

Cons

It's a big company now. It often takes a lot of effort to start new projects and there are plenty of distracting or disassociated programs. It's controlled, fast chaos at times.

Advice to Management

Make sure that you have the best people managers possible, they really seem to make the difference between a team you join and a team you avoid.

    Pros

    The people in my department are very nice and the perks are great. I really enjoyed working for this company. You get the opportunity to work independently and with fantastic teams.

    Cons

    Many of their employees are contract employees, so about 1/3 of their workforce is constantly moving and shifting.

    Pros

    The pay and perk were good. Lots of smart people to work with. Good environment. Lots of food. There are free shuttles, free laundry services. People are nice

    Cons

    It takes a lot of time to do simple things. I think that it takes a lot of time to do something significant. People are nice, but seem to be very busy with work.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was supportive. But he was part time. So, I didn't find him sometimes.
