Lots of Opportunity, Future Uncertain

Former Employee - Software Engineer  in  Loveland, CO
Former Employee - Software Engineer in Loveland, CO

Pros

o Many jobs are eligible for work from home
o Pay can be good depending on job and location - bonuses are variable (sometimes 0%)
o Challenging problems
o Opportunities to work with some of the most brilliant people in the industry
o Global perspectives
o Extreme large scale environment with many challenges

Cons

o Work-Life balance - not so much. Typical week is 50+ hours. Sometimes 60-70.
o Not enough people who know how to do your job - no cover
o Benefits keep getting slashed - why? The excuse is that everyone else is doing it.
o Offshoring mentality - many jobs moving overseas
o Continuous layoff culture - you never know if you are safe
o No carryover of earned time off. Must use all of your leave every year and be sure you save one week because you ALWAYS have to take 3-4 days at Christmas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

o Hire enough people to do the job - just because one person knows how to doesn't mean you have it covered
o Be realistic with budgets for the day-to-day items - discretionary budgets for lower level managers

    Pros

    A lot of resources available; lots of opportunities for growth if you have the time to do it.

    Don't hope to get a salary increase every year, and if you do it's a measly 1%
