Pros

Interesting work, smart coworkers, opportunities for growth. I've had three managers, each of which have been very willing to help me move on to positions that interest me.

Cons

As with any large company, you need to learn to be an advocate for yourself and the good work you do...so you don't get lost in the crowd.

    Pros

    Stable company Good medical benefits Depending on projects - excellent work-life balance Work from home Nice coworkers

    Cons

    Not so exciting projects 80% of the time Some people can just coast by without putting in any effort and goes unnoticed Non-existent raises (if you're a high performer you can get 1%, that's lower than inflation adjustment, if you're a mediocre performer you get nada) Limited room to learn and grow skill-set Out-dated software - some people still use windows XP and MS Office 2002, really!? You get good amount of vacation days but you can never use them because taking one week off will take 2% off your total utilization

    Advice to Management

    For a technology company, you guys should focus more on getting employees the software / tools they need to get the job done.
