Its War. War with others on your team, war with other teams, war with other divisions. War with everybody and it sucks.

Pros

Always work to do and there is never a shortage of people who have software problems you can help fix.

Cons

They tend to hire a lot of Jr. level people and then have the Sr. people clean up the messes. Marketing is all powerful but doesn't understand technology. The most innovative projects get cut or filled with bad people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop the stack raking n all forms, allow teams to work together to a common goal, stop hiring idiots to fill empty seats.

    Pros

    It is well established global company that is the leader in its field. You will find some of the brightest minds in the world working here. The experience will help you wherever you decide to go with your career.

    Cons

    As a large company goes, it can be quite overwhelming to work here. And there are times when the workload may impede on your work-life balance. But, if you can manage it, you will be fine.
