Pros

Benefits, compensation and growth opportunities. Team focus with support from management. Ability to share thoughts and ideas freely as well.

Cons

Management doesn't convey company vision to rest of team. Lots of internal politics. Must protect yourself and actions at all times. Should be careful who you convey ideas to as well.

Advice to Management

Work on sharing company vision better.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, work and life balance

    Cons

    Too many managers who have been promoted from individual contributors who have no idea how to lead their staff. Some admit they are just coasting until their sweet retirement plan kicks in.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of the "coasters" and egomaniacs - don't put them in charge of resolving issues raised in employees surveys - they are the issue!!!!

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits, access to current technologies.

    Cons

    Teamwork is challenged, as others have said, SLOW decision making, internal competition can be stifling or scary. Be prepared to work 12 hours/day or whatever it takes to meet deadlines. Exhausting. You may not have a cube or office, but just open seating, however they may also allow you to work from home nearby on VPN as long as you can show up for meetings. Security paranoia is understandable and also one of the reasons it is so difficult to get things done. Data integration is tricky with systems all isolated by firewalls. And projects all locked down and secured. "Skip Level meeting", (unless you scheduled it) means you are getting canned.

    Advice to Management

    Hold managers accountable for the core values, including diversity. Need more longer term stability in internal department organization. Every time you reorganize and jerk people around, employees waste time moving and re-securing their project data as well as their cube spaces (if they have a cube or office). System administrators cant keep up with demand for authorizing and de-authorize access, and migration of team folders and data. Big waste of time.
