Pros

great people awesome technologies from Labs huge career potential online communities are good fantastic support of women good values good work/life balance is possible

Cons

management is misdirected so many opportunities missed with acquisitions too many acquisitioned companies means it is full of middle managers with no clue and now has to cull the fat. you can guess who is safe from reductions though.. all these great technology innovations from Labs never getting to market management cries out for 'innovation' but will not sponsor it - any time i made suggestions i was always told 'no we can't do that' poor pay grades , no raises, no out call allowance if you are on an after-hours support roll

Advice to Management

look at the big picture, your people are appreciating resources, why get rid of the few loyal ones you have left?

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, great work-life-balance, amazing people, work from home options.

    Cons

    limited opportunities once you start moving up in the organization; constant organization and management changes, constant cost cutting initiatives can be draining on morale.

    Advice to Management

    Constant threat of job cuts makes it hard for employees to concentrate on priorities.

    Pros

    Very good place to start your career and gain skills recognized worldwide. Hands-on, ITIL driven experience with large environments. Possibility to work with professionals from various technologies.

    Cons

    Very hard to get a salary raise. Even if brain leak to other companies is obvious you're basically stuck with what you agreed when on-boarding. Management is sometimes too self-centred and chasing their own personal benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Value your human resources more.
