Pros

Good Work-Life Balance. Great people and company treats them well. Some interesting projects. Great global company, that cares about people and the environment (manufactures phones cleaning as possible).

Cons

Large company, so things take time to get done. The past two years (and the next) wil have lots of reorganizations, with reduction in staff, to save costs and stream line projects.

Advice to Management

Keep the moral up. When you reorg with reductions - continue the practice of caring for your employees, like you are currently doing (assistance with job search, fair packages, enough notice for families to adjust). We understand the business need to streamline.

    Pros

    Great workplace with descent perks. Nice people, very little office politics. Interesting work. Middle management is supportive of their reports.

    Cons

    The company is in difficult financial times, and successful projects are often cut, while the company bets bit on poor projects. If you don't mind working on cool stuff that will never make it out the door this is fine; but if you want to ship products, expect them to get cancelled at the last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on company culture. Stop killing good technology for bad business reasons.
