Pros

Excellent work/life balance
Great people to work with, innovative and helpful
Abundance of information available, manuals, education, company is like a massive university, can learn anything and everything from IT to Business.
Great career opporunities within local center.
Global teams means working across countries.

Cons

Poor local management, some what like school children, some manager are definitely not qualified to be people managers.
Way too much emphasis on cost cutting, no corporate gifts, no coffee machines, there is not even a cup of instant coffee available. Not motivational incentives.
Attrition is handled very poorly and no attempt to retain talented people.
