    Pros

    - large company - decent benefits (although they take benefits away every year and costs are escalating. At least in U.S.) - Work from home options

    Cons

    - A lot of behind the scenes layoffs in U.S. to stay out of news - Company measurements pit people against each other instead of working together. - VERY silo'd environment - Bureaucracy is a nightmare

    Pros

    Awesome colleagues. The software engineers I worked with were absolute professionals, hardworking, helpful and most were wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    You never know from one quarter to the next whether you'll still be employed. Your performance doesn't matter if you're in the wrong place at the wrong time. You may be given time to find other jobs within the company, but even if you find an opening within your division, the manager may not be allowed to hire you if the overall goal of the "resource action" was to reduce headcount: They have to wait until the latest batch of "surplus" employees are out the door before filling the position.

    Advice to Management

    You can't expect people to give their all if job security is non-existent.
