Pros

big and well known company, lots of different areas and products to work on, research opportunities, flexible work hours, friendly environment

Cons

cost cuts at employees' cost, benefits and salary increases not competitive, no transparency between managers and employees, slowly follows economic trends

Advice to ManagementAdvice

better training of first line managers, refilling of open positions, offering competitive employee benefits, such as hardware and software equipment paid by employer

Recommends

    Pros

    Can work from home most of the time
     Lots and lots of OT (the only way to make 1/2 way decent salary)
     Free health insurance
     6% 401k match
     Profit sharing bonuses
     Paid technical training

    Cons

    Not enough room for advancement
     People with no experience getting lead and manager positions
     Some managers will only give 2 for PBC score (hint, switch teams now, dont wait another sec.)
     Far below fair market value in pay (hence why so many demand OT over comp time)
     GDF is a failure, too much overhead and accounts are leaving, they need to dump it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some are great people to work for and I would say keep up the good work.
     To others who try to micro-manage; Loosen up.
