Pros

Cons

- Big company challenges of innovating at speed - Lots of silos and code duplication so each team reinvents the wheel - Hard to fire people, so even the non-performers with ppl with personal agendas stay for a long time

Advice to Management

    Pros

    The company has a lot of smart people Good products Good exposure to technology that is used by millions

    Cons

    Very type A and self absorbed organization Stack ranking in HR is really a de-motivator Products developed are still not designed with the end user in mind - they cater to the Engineers that develop the products, SI. Admins, IT staff ...not the end user

    Advice to Management

    Add more diversity of personality types not just nationalities
