Pros

Diverse workforce and product portfolio. Movement within the company means you can always find something "new" to do. Excellent benefits even as they've been curtailed over the years.

Cons

In the dwindling minority of Fortune 500 companies that still subscribe to Jack Welch's "Rank and Yank" review system.

    Pros

    It is very employee focused as well as always striving to best serve its customers. Employees are very hard working but the company tries to provide a flexible and fun work environment.

    Cons

    As it has grown it has lost a lot of the personal feel that helped to make it the company it was years ago.

    Pros

    - Cutting edge technology.
    - Interesting and new products to work on.

    Cons

    - Review process pretty hard-core. Reviews used to be (not sure if still are) on a bell curve, so someone had to do poorly, even when everyone was doing awesome.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency with direction of the company and the review process would lead to more innovation.
