    Pros

    Great products and field level people who want to do the customers right. Benefits are good and vacation time is honored.

    Cons

    Horrible management and a bunch of mid-level managers only looking out for themselves. They will stab you in the back in a heart beat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the overhead (i.e. mid level management), stop making stupid decisions like removing specialist from Enterprise Vault because you don't want to pay people (lost market share), tell Enrique this is not a college fraternity and he should not party so hard with employees, partners, and customers.

    Pros

    This is the only large (non startup) company I have worked at. So I was really impressed with the benefits and the job security.

    Cons

    All the big company drawbacks that you see in Dilbert. From the pointy horned boss, gutted employee morale and totally pointless products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As an entry level employee i do not have any feedback for leadership other than they should have a clear message for all employees about internal innovation.

    No opinion of CEO
