Pros

Lots of freedom and trust, and plenty of flexibility in my work schedule.

Cons

Once locked in at your starting salary, the annual pay increases aren't very substantial. It takes a lot of time to be properly rewarded financially for your work.

Advice to Management

I can appreciate the rigid structure for salary increases and promotions, but I think it needs to be more elastic to allow its employees to be fairly rewarded for good work.

    Pros

    Large organization with a very large global foot print.

    Cons

    The size made it hard to be noticed and heard

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the organizational feedback & the LM21 results, and stop overriding data driven feedback or results.

    Pros

    - Good Benefits, but shrinking over time - Technically competent, Innovative place to work - Flexible work environment - Challenging projects

    Cons

    - Too many levels of management, second only to government bureaucracy - Constant Reorganization, but no real change - Loss of talent and experience because not people focused: would rather hire "cheaper" lvl-1 lvl-2 engineers rather than keep competent lvl-3 lvl-4 engineers employed

    Advice to Management

    It is not all about the short term bottom-line, need to realign to be people focused. Talent base has dwindled over time. Need strategically competent leaders rather than bean counters that fosters team growth. Strip away levels of management.
