    Pros

    Large company with a huge variety of professional areas and projects to explore, very nice co-workers to work with. Excellent opportunity for junior staff. Focused effort to seek out and recruit the brightest and the best. Nice to include on the resume -

    Cons

    Lip service and management posturing notwithstanding, there is limited support for career development, easy to get pigeon-holed and stuck. You are only as good as your last timesheet. Your value is your ability to bring in work. Period. No hard feelings if you don't, just know that if you come-up short then your employment is ended. At least you know where you stand. I think there is pride amongst management that only the fittest earners survive and that sets-up a vicious dog-eat-dog competitive environment that, at least for me, was exhausting to maintain.

    Very clique-ish. There is the inside group, then all the rest. It isn't a very supportive team environment. If you are in the out-group it can be lonely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talented folks don't leave companies, they leave management that doesn't meet their needs or provide support.
