    Pros

    Food in the cafeteria is good

    Cons

    Bureaucrats everywhere! People with no experience are in leadership roles. Imagine having an "experienced" HR person, run the IT dept.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all the dead weight, get a new plan.

    Pros

    Challenging positions, excellent opportunities for advancement. Once you prove yourself, your reputation carries a lot of weight. On-site exercise facility and game room. Food service is excellent.

    Cons

    Sometimes projects require many overtime hours with no real reward except that upline management acknowledges your efforts. Work from home policy is more fair than it was a few years ago, but by far not fair across the board. Some positions are 100% work from home while the same position in another department or division doesn't offer that option.

    Advice to Management

    Work from home opportunities need to be fair across the board, in all districts and in all entities.

    Pros

    Cafeteria has good choices and food. People are nice and generally pleasant to work with. Work-life balance is a priority and the culture is laid back - perhaps to the point of a Con versus a Pro.

    Cons

    Mediocrity is the normal. Innovation is choked out by ignorance and complacency. Productivity blocks are put into place to punish creativity and "out of the box" thinking in the vein of "Security".

    Advice to Management

    If you going to run a software shop, run a software shop. Listen to your employees with experience.
