Pros

Most things are self-help which allows me to get things done more quickly and efficiently. They have forums and wikis for help which allows for a more collaborative work environment. Benefits are pretty good and they have a system in place for performance review that actually affects how you are compensated.

Cons

Most things are self-help which means if you have trouble using the tools you are probably out-of-luck. It's easy to feel "lost in the crowd" at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I know it is hard but there needs to be better ways to interface with upper management. Maybe management checking a forum or something?

    Pros

    Great life/work balance. Good people and understanding management. Many opportunities to expand career. A great place to start career also.

    Cons

    You will be a small caog in a a big machine. There are too many divisions and sometimes differrent departments don't know what others are doing, despite upper management's best efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its a hard goal for a company of this size, but better transparancy and deeper communication will help keep the employees well-aligned with company goals, and motivated.
