    Pros

    It has a good engineering environment. Lots of smart engineers. If you perform well you will be rewarded. Several offices around the globe make it easy to work and transfer.

    Cons

    Very little pay compared to industry standards. You had to beg for a raise. If you are not a top 3 performer you get very little opportunity to succeed. No adoption of a mobile work place environment. You had to be there for each meeting. Working remotely was frowned upon. Lots of politics and no empowerment for jr level managers. Folks barely moved from position and leadership oppurtunities came with little monetary incentive.

    Advice to Management

    1) Empower your Jr Mgrs
    2) Adopt some new methods in the workplace
    3) Incentivize leadership oppurtunities
    4) Get rid of kiss-ass employees and management
