The money is adequate enough, if you can ignore the internal politics that make the place intolerable.

Pros

The money, benefits and their name on your resume. If you are good at avoiding/ignoring the backstabbing to get up the corporate ladder and can keep to yourself -- being satisfied with just doing your job -- it's an OK place.

Cons

Top heavy management. Bad internal politics. Lack of training opportunities. The poor way that the company handles performance evaluations which they directly link to salary increases -- too often people that do a good job don't get a good review, because of budgets cuts and poor management decisions.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees better -- like people and not chattel. Separate your performance evaluations from the methods you use to define salary increases. Your employees will be more satisfied with a review that is actually based on their performance rather then one re-ranked to fit in with how much money was allotted to the team.

    Very tough environment, often neglecting people's needs. Work and life balance is fairytail in this environment.
