A great company if you can wade through the politics

(Former Employee)

ProsIntelligent workforce, interesting products, worldwide presence, nice benefits, very stable. If you're looking for a career for 20 years this is a fine place to be, especially if you're a hard worker and a superstar talent. The sky is truly the limit.

ConsPolitics. Most of the company seems hinged on ladder climbing over substance, resulting in slow progress and wasted effort. The best talent seems to leave after a few years, while the weaker talent plants roots.

They pay on the low side, which is funny since they hire lots of contractors at high rates who accomplish little.

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage people to apply more focus to the work at hand than the next promotion.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
