Pros

Salaries, Benefits, Learning, Opportunities are awesome

Cons

Managers make or break your experience - no consistency across managers management skills, experience, expectations. Micromanagement is common.

Advice to Management

Trust your employees, give them space to grow and make opportunities available to internal applicants. Improve WLB not just by talking about it.

    Pros

    work with crazy smart people. it's rare you would ever hear someone say "that is not my job." The phrase "work hard, play hard" sums up my experience. At times you will work long hours and other times can have a more balanced life.

    Cons

    it's a big company and takes a lot of meetings to get things done. The review model pretty much is a bummer. Good is rarely good enough. If you do the job you were hired to do and do it well, you will only get an average review.

    Advice to Management

    you need to do a better job embracing customer service. Upper management will talk about the customer being centric to what we do, but reality we are so focused on our internal processes, the customer, at times gets lost.
