Pros

Great Benefits and compensation, brand name recognition, cutting edge products that make an impact, internal options, highly visible in any industry they play in

Cons

Matrixed org, decisions made my committee, internal mobility not as easily achieved as sales pitch, many cooks in the kitch

Advice to ManagementAdvice

time to reinvigorate empowering people to make decisions, need to re-evaluate aspects of the "matrix", show real dedicate to keeping top employees through internal mobility

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, work at home

    Cons

    Self-focused colleagues, opinionated and narrow minded senior staff, more red tape than Washington, DC, suffocating, circular, never ending projects that are never completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the people that don't do anything, that cause trouble as you're losing thebest people to other companies b/c of them.

    Pros

    there are nice training. your peers are usually smart. there are some challenging problems to work with. this place is best for college graduates for the first job.

    Cons

    the pay is low. vendors usually are paid much higher. advancing is kinda slow for tech company. this is a company that is no longer in growth stage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the biggest problem is that there are too many so called "leaders" and middle managements. i don't know what they are doing anyways.
