Pros

Good balance between work and life, and have flexible work time. In general, it is not busy and good for people who want to work in IT but not keep highly busy.

Cons

Too many meetings that do not make much sense. The performance reviewing system is disgusting. There is too much politics in teams.

    Pros

    Great compensation Great benefits Great perks that you truly need and want as an adult (nope, I can do my own laundry thank you very much) Smart, very professional coworkers

    Cons

    The review model Lack of direction and vision from the very top Outlook more unclear than ever

    Advice to Management

    Please institute a review model that truly recognizes and encourages collaboration and team success over individual achievements
