Pros

Salary and Benefits and and and....

Cons

You could get away with murder if you know how to suck up to management. Technical expertise is something they think they know but how far behind the employees really are they would know only if they left the company and joined any other gig or were kicked out

Advice to Management

Fire yourself!!

    Pros

    You would neither need to be smart nor need to think algorithimically. Good for people who cannot get a job anywhere else.

    Cons

    Most of the things are just process related rather than about problem solving or creativity. like writing different frameworks again and again with exactly the same functionality. Job is stagnant most of time with almost zero growth. No compensation raise most of time. even if it raises its only about a mean 100$. Stagnation does not even mean a secure job, since there have been random layoffs continuously. Stock price is constant.

    Advice to Management

    Give performance based compensation raise to employees.

    Wide range of products and technologies to work on Seen and used by millions of customers Lots of career advancement opportunities Lots of smart people to work with...very few idiots you run into

    Cons

    Benefits are getting cut Salaries aren't moving Morale budgets cut Not as fun of a place to work as it used to be

    Advice to Management

    Make employees the number one resource...pay em more, give em more perks...make them want to work harder and longer.
