I worked at Sybase

Pros

it's a big company, great for networking. The compensation is fine, and so are the employer benefits. oh, and the kitchen is always full of free pops

Cons

it is a big company so the work for each person on the team is very specific and it's a lot of repetition.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

they hold a weekly meeting in each team, and a monthly meeting for the teams that work together to trace the progress.

    I have been working at Sybase full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Will be merged into SAP and we are getting stock options, more benefits, etc.

    Cons

    Bad management style.
    Treated Chinese engineers as cheap labor (hopefully SAP will not do this. otherwise I'll have to go).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fill the salary gap between Sybase and other companies. Provide more career development opportunities.
