    Pros

    * Good benefits package. * Better than average PTO. * Horizontal mobility is strong. * Some relocation opportunities. * Laid-back dress policy and core hours. * Some interesting technologies and work if you happen to get in the right group or the right project. * Relatively good job security for engineers, DBAs, and other strong technical jobs. * There is usually a year-end bonus for non-management, typically about 1 week of pay. * Usually there is money and will to get the tools you need or want.

    Cons

    * Political environment that doesn't want to hear dissenting opinions. * Salary ranges are slowly going below industry average. * No creative compensation for non-management types. * Work-life balance typically means you get to work from home instead of calling in sick. * Some jobs are getting off-shored. * There is quite a bit of bureaucracy involved in resource requests costing over a few grand. * In tech, some low-level managers promoted into place because they're aggressive tech people, i.e., they tend to be opinionated, workaholic, yes-men who don't handle either disagreement or differing work styles very well. * Upward mobility or career advancement can be slow, or sometimes halted altogether by a lazy or incompetent manager.

    Advice to Management

    On the one hand, some of the better, newer trends in employment satisfaction and career fulfillment have been embraced by management, along with better, newer ideas about how to work with technology. On the other hand, not surprisingly, some old crustiness remains, and meanwhile some bad new ideas have made their way in as well. First off, you need to get each and every manager onto a more helpful, motivational track. At the moment, some managers are very demotivational and very brittle regarding feedback. The boss gets the final say, but it shouldn't be career suicide to have a disagreement about how technology works. Also, managers should be seen as helpful to the employee; it's easily a one-way street for some at review-time. Second, work-life balance, better salaries or merit-based compensation, and more self-determinism at work will help you retain your better employees. And stop off-shoring! Your business needs too many on-continent employees for off-shoring benefits to outweigh the cost in morale and off-hours tele-presence.
