    Pros

    -The company is great for early career hires. There are lots of opportunities for networking and mentoring, and people are very kind and willing to help. The teams I've worked with and the manager I've had have been extremely supportive.
    -Treated as a true part of the team, and given meaningful work.
    -Very good work-life balance - flexible work schedules and the understanding that there is life outside of work.
    -CEO Meg Whitman is really special - she is able to create a connected work environment with a mission.

    Cons

    -Old soul company: They are trying to put an emphasis on recruiting "millenial" talent, which is great, but there's a lot of room for improvement in that sense.
    -Company separation: Has made it difficult due to changing processes, structures, teams, etc. It has been tough working in this ambiguous environment (but then again, what company DOESN'T have constant change)?

    Advice to Management

    -Less bureaucracy. Streamline more processes. Doesn't need to be so complicated all the time!
    -Base pay is low compared to the market. Reward employees better throughout the year.

    Pros

    Great manager and co-workers! Extremely intelligent engineers with deep understanding of technology.

    Cons

    LARGE company with inherent bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Small teams with a set goal are critical to success.
    Engineers don't usually like to be salesmen, although there are some exceptions.
    Canned solutions are nice from a sales perspective, but many businesses have to think outside defined boxes in order to innovate.

    You felt safe, as they were a large organization. Servers are solid.

    Pros

    Great programs for the employees, great benefits

    Cons

    company let go of people who were top performers bc they were teleworkers and did not have a local site. They make a "verbal" show about retaining top talent but then make blanket decision w/out managing them at lower levels. the exception policies don't work...too many leaders afraid of getting in trouble or HR not reviewing them

    Advice to Management

    SR Management needs to be open and honest about how policies impact their organizations....stop being "yes ppl to Meg.." let her know what's really going on. Maybe she doesn't care...but maybe she does.
