Pros

Large corporation, in theory many possibilities to collaborate and work on a variety of topics. Generally you end up doing what you are most capable of and can move around with some degree of flexibility.

Cons

In practice a lot of the cons are more exceptions than the rule. People are put where they are needed, not necessarily respecting what they would like to work on. Promotions even in the technical career path are rarely mean you can do more research, instead they often come with more management responsibility.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are some amazing engineers working with/for the company. If their personal wellbeing was more of a concern to management, the productivity and level of innovation overall would increase plus people would be happy.

    Pros

    Great people.. hardest working bunch of folks i have ever met.
    Work from home (if that is desirable for you)

    Cons

    extremely long hours
    no respect for life/work balance
    pay /work hours = less than minimum wage
    no attempts to retain key resources

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot deliver without delivery teams. Off shoring may be cheaper short term, but is costing more in good will and damaging customer relations.
