Pros

Good technology if you are in core data storage areas
Good pay & benefits

Cons

We can create a linked list of management chain with the link property set as personal acquaintence. Talent is irrelevent in selecting people in high positions - favoritism rules. Managers form opinion not based on rsults of work but on the opinion of their favorite "lead". Very bad for energetic neutral engineers who are not "aligned" to management drinking cool-aid.

There are quite a few good managers around and if you are lucky to be with them, your life is good. Having few product lines, job rotation is not an option and best way to advance your career path is to leave for a better job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mid management and some architects with questionable talent in a lot of groups will pull down the company. When favoritism & politics rule, bad talents accumulate and let the good talent leave.

    Current Employee - Technical Support Engineer II  in  Raleigh, NC
    Current Employee - Technical Support Engineer II in Raleigh, NC

    Pros

    Company benefits, 401 match, Employee stock purchase plan, fun activities like "Beer Bash Fridays", cookouts, and other team building activities. Tons of training. Friendly Management.
    Relaxed dress code, and the list goes on. Competitive pay.

    Cons

    When it comes to the Management, sometimes the right hand doesn't seem to know what the left hand is doing. Some of the higher-ups make silly decisions that will make them look good to their Bosses, not realizing how it's going to effect the ones actually doing the work.

    If you don't like or can't handle a stressful environment, this isn't the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to your team and actually voice the issues to your Boss instead of letting it stop with you.
