Pros

Overseas transfer opportunities - opportunity to do work that matters - prestige of company gets meetings with client decision makers - solution portfolio is vast

Cons

Salary decisions are based on averages - many are underpaid vs industry for similar work - quarterly pressure for results is dialed up - administrivia and internal bureaucracy is over the top - CEO is fantastic, though the surrounding SVPs are less so

  2. Big company, many good products and grea people, but compensation is not as good if your area's living standard is high.
