Not a good supporter of Work Life Balance. Very fast paced company.

Pros

Good telecommuting chances. Great database technology.

Cons

No raises in Support. Watch out if you have a lousy boss, and there are quite a few out there. You will be competing with folks who sacrifice their family and life for the company. Some groups give very little training for the technology the employees have to keep up with. Poor Work Life Balance in Support including Cloud Services. Extremely fast paced company.

Advice to Management

Have a code of conduct for managers also. Stop bullying employees. Internal Job Search Site is very unfriendly for employees.

    Pros

    You can work remotely and the work provides challenges which keep it from getting stale. The health benefits are good and they provide the typical 401k and other comp benefits. Formerly had lots of budget for training.

    Cons

    Low reward for hard work so don't expect competitive raises. They offshore too many colleagues which places a large burden on local staff to rework or take problems that need to be solved in a timely manner. The culture is too self help about HR, IT, professional development, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Management places too much value on low cost offshore labor. They should recognize the return on investment of off shoring versus a dedicated local employee that is more vested in seeing work through. Proved better compensation for employees to stay.

    Pros

    - Smart, hard-working people with a great attitude - Leading edge - Excellent Benefits - Remote work

    Cons

    - Poor or no increases - Difficult to advance your career - Heavy Bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    - Reward the talent that you have - currently, the only way to get a decent increase or a promotion is to leave - Simplify your processes, so many approvals needed, senior management has better things to do
