    Pros

    None! If there is anything - it may be flexible timing...you should be 24 hr on call anyway!

    Cons

    Sweatshop work environment
    Difficult to demonstrate ownership of work - your time is always divided among different projects
    Management is useless, does not "devote" as much time as programmers to work, often has no understanding of the work
    No prospects for growth, no bonus, increments probably if you're ready to be "married" to your job
    Management keeps asking if you have even a "couple of hours" of time and by that they mean a "couple of hours on top of the 12-14 hours" you're expected to work on a regular basis
    New hires are not properly onboarded, trained or given a lead time before they're expected to conjure fabulous results over a short timeline
    Extremely stressfull work environment....stay away unless you don't have any other option!

    Advice to Management

    You need to do something quick to keep your flock

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules
    Most employees work from home
    401k & company match
    Autonomy, self-reliance, self-sufficiency
    Excellent pay if you negotiate up front for it
    Adequate benefits
    Company likes to promote from within and I was told there is ample growth opportunities if you work HARD!

    Cons

    Global organization which can easily make you feel like just another number
    Training is very inadequate across the majority of departments
    Direction comes from all across the board so you will always wonder “Who is my Manager?”
    Overworked staff + burnout = high turnover
    Bureaucratic
    Political games
    Silo Mentality

    Advice to Management

    The higher ups need to follow through with the suggestions and ideas of the worker bees that are doing the work each day. We know what we are talking about better than you do because you don’t actually do the work. Also quickly reward and promote employees that work HARD. Get rid of (FIRE) those that are just dead weight and only want to collect a paycheck. You know who they are...

    Offer better training opportunities to those that want to be promoted.
