Pros

Generally Good benefits. Coworkers are outstanding to work with.

Cons

Benefits are consistently declining for the past 15 years. No real improvement in benefits for past 15 years except for soft benefits that add little value for the employee. Company has progressed from very caring company to an employee beat down environment. Respect for the individual has disappeared. Aggressive layoffs yearly, unannounced to the public dismissing older employees. Morale low.

Advice to Management

Wake up to the way you are treating employees.

    Pros

    Good pay, not expected to work more than 40 hours in most cases

    Cons

    Moving up can be difficult

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees work! You're either a BS funnel or a BS umbrella :-)

    Pros

    -Access to most talented resources (sales, technical, etc) in the world. -Integrity of employees paramount. -Opportunity to work on some of the most complex problems that clients were facing.

    Cons

    -Large, corporate culture sometimes prevented the front-line sales teams the ability to make the right decisions for their clients. -Became very process and metric driven towards the end of my career. -Have lost a great deal of intellectual capital over the years due to retirements, promotions out of business, individuals who started their own business.

    Advice to Management

    -Eliminate the metric-driven pipeline reviews and get back to face to face relationships with your clients.
