Pros

they have their challenges but are looking for ways to improve and they have something good with the cloud initiatives

Cons

a lot of people jockeying for just a few jobs and it's easy to get complacent. a complete matrix organization

Advice to Management

earnings are now the most important thing, so please just say that instead of creating new values for the company.

    Great tech, even greater bureaucracy. Great place to camp on a good salary as long as you don't get bored or layed off.

    Pros

    The best reason to work there: you get into a group working on cutting edge tech and/or learning from SME managers that can mentor.

    Cons

    Crusty middle management camping out until they retire. Great ideas get squashed every day. The best ideas escape and start life as competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Become cannibals. Start eating your crusty business units to make room for truly innovative, market defining offerings. Get rid of a few layers of middle management (ha! like that will ever happen).

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to experience a lot of types of work and people and are exposed to a global company. Loved the ability to work remotely from home.

    Cons

    Too hard to transition to any other career paths once you start down a path. They often freeze moves between divisions and you can't change jobs as easily as they would lead you to believe. They would rather lay you off than take a chance on moving you into a different career path.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your valuable experienced people...allow them to change jobs and careers within the company instead of laying them off.
