    Pros

    Great and diverse people who understand the true team environment. Brand recognition is huge and also brings massive credibility. Global presence means virtually unlimited geographic locations to choose from as well.

    Cons

    Rapid (almost to a fault) execution and distribution of products and plans where implementation not always as smooth as could be desired. Bureaucratic machine. Size and scope (pro as well as con). Incessant aquisitions and strategic shifts result in constant re-organization and (in) stability issues.

    Advice to Management

    Increase QA of procesess and product releases. Take greater input from "front-line" employees. Resist drive to so quickly act.

    Pros

    Great company with excellent benefits compared to most american companies. Good opportunities to find other positions globally. Development organization is trying to become agile.

    Cons

    The benefits used to be much better before the merger but that might be because of the times, things are pretty bad for the financial industry and it really hit TR's bottom line. Depending on what area one works in, recent dramatic changes in management meant layoffs mostly for people with seniority and an opinion. New managers changed processes completely and hired mostly college students to cut cost... but I guess it will save the company money, in the near term. Used to be able to work from home some days but that has been completely eliminated. Now everyone has to be in the office even if you have late night calls with your team in Asia. I thought companies in general are leaning more and more towards dispersed teams that telecommute, but no longer at TR... dispersed maybe, but you still have to waste highly valuable real estate in Times Square and be there every day.

    Advice to Management

    You might want to consider flattening your corporate structure somewhat... 5+ layers of management can be quite counterproductive to getting things done. Take a look down the management ladder and see if everyone is 'really' doing a good job.
