    Career development was the best.

    Internal focus predominated people's thoughts.

    Advice to Management

    As if they'd listen to me!


  2. Great place to learn disciplined and structured software engineering, but can be too much structured.

    Pros

    Great benefits. The salary and benefits are quite competitive. Chance to work with some quite talented engineers. Broad product range provide flexibility to work on different areas based on interest.

    Cons

    Engineering at some teams (especially older) can become too structured sometimes. There is not much room for innovation, and the rigid requirements can make the work feel boring sometimes. Hard to make significant contributions at the junior levels.

    Advice to Management

    Allow some room for innovation and part time projects to retain talented people, especially at the beginner levels.
