Pros

Great work environment and benefits. Friendly people with great experience. Campus is large and beautiful. Easy to shift between teams and experience a large variety of complex projects.

Cons

It is a large company. A company that tends to try and solve every problem by adding more layers of approvals, paperwork, and shutdowns then wonders why it can't keep up with other companies. Also loves to solve budget problems by cutting workforce then getting even more perplexed on why they are moving slower.

Advice to Management

You have an incredibly talented and powerful workforce. Give them the power to win! This means you have to take some risks but your people are very capable of minimizing these risks and exceeding expectations. Your release processes are so outdated, overprotective, and sometimes just plain absurd that none of your teams can reach their potential.

    Pros

    Great Technology (Software Group), World Class Solutions,

    Cons

    Out of touch leadership (Software Group) who loves to bring in leaders from Symantec and turn a once high earning and proud division into a pile of mediocre under performers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people from Symantec and turning the sales organization into a mediocre sales team. No wonder all of your leadership is leaving.
