Pros

Corporate Culture is among the finest available. They stipulate the highest level of maturity and ethics, and they follow it.

Cons

Corporate structure of any company this large is very rigid. If you are not at the place you want to be in your career you should consider building it elsewhere first. Otherwise you will always be held back based on your original hire skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find ways to improve your speed and responsiveness to customer needs. Internal processes are extremely cumbersome and customers don't want to wait when they can find smaller, more responsive companies around the corner.

    Pros

    Latest tech
    Pride
    Job significance
    Company history
    Quality of work.

    Cons

    Certain HR and management dealing with outside consulting firms in an unethical manner.
    Waste of company's resources.
    Management that if it was not deceitful it was incompetent.
    Some were much better in office politics and much worst in managing projects.
    A parent company that was fighting constructive change till it was too late.
    Nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Non needed since it is too late for them to receive advice or feedback.
    Most of them lost their jobs or were pushed to a meaningless and redundant position since the merger.
    The saga continues in the parent company that since going public saw its stock price sinking to almost a tenth of its initial real value.
    It should be as high as CME, not as low as a failing retailer.
