Comfortable but boring

Software Development Engineer Intern (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

Pros- Good pay/perks for the area, job stability.
- Not as many long nights as at a startup.
- Company has a lot of resources.

Cons- Boring! Other companies in industry are doing much more interesting things.
- It's a huge company, don't expect to feel much camaraderie with coworkers or be kept informed of (the few) interesting things going on in the organization.
- Very top down (compared to startups and other companies in the software industry).

Advice to Senior Management- Innovate more.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
