Pros

Large company with a lot of options across the company. A lot of products to bring together to solve a customers problem. Vacation is managed between you and your manager.

Cons

Draconian cost controls. Low moral across the company. Death by conference call. 401K is only funded in October - so if you leave before (or are laid off), you get nothing. The out of pocket cost for insurance for an average family is nearly $1000/month

Advice to Management

Bring the little things back. Thank you Awards. Sales comp plans that make people feel they can make money.

    Pros

    We get both chilled and heated water for free. That's it.

    Cons

    In the summer of 2011 a decree was laid down that we all needed to be 'in the office 5 days a week'. I've been a top performer for 10 years and this came down even thought my manager and second line manager didn't agree. Morale is very low.

    Advice to Management

    You beat Yahoo! to the punch, and have been losing talent ever since.

    Pros

    Work life balance, a large company which allows you to move around in position.

    Cons

    Lowest in salary and compensation. Not much else to offer to employee.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay fast, else loose all the talents.
