    Pros

    Professional work environment; good co-workers. Management is highly matrixed, so self motivation is very important.

    Cons

    Lots of tech jobs moving to "GR" .... Global Resource, that is, India, China, Brazil, Eastern Europe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How many project managers are really required for a project. It sometimes seems that technical projects have about twice as many managers as technicians.

    Pros

    Cutting edge innovative company that values its employees. Be ready to work very hard but be paid fairly for the work that you do. Great learning opportunities are available for all employees. Company values its position in the market and is constantly innovating in order to meet customer needs.

    Cons

    Big company so implementing new ideas can be a tedious process. Work life balance is not great if you really want to get ahead. If you are not looking for speedy advancement, then good work life balance is possible. Some employees have been around for a many years and believe they are entitled to things because of their seniority. This can create problems for younger employees like myself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Schedule more time for employee evaluations and feedback sessions
