    Pros

    Great Company to work for!!
    Awesome work. Exposure to the best technologies.
    Good exposure to customer deployment.

    Cons

    Management is not that great.
    Forcing people to stretch and work on every weekend is not good!!!!
    Pay is pretty average for a company of such a huge stature!

    Advice to Management

    People have their personal lives. Don't think that work is everything.

    Pros

    - Good atmosphere in teams
    - Smaller but demanding projects, some of them based on very modern technologies
    - Managers acting like friends rather than like bosses
    - Many young ambitious people
    - Decent salaries, many benefits
    - Team parties every once in a while
    - I was never asked to stay overhours

    Cons

    - I heard that in other departments that the one I was working things aren't so beautiful
    - Quite frequent changes of office location (if it's a problem for somebody)
    - Some less effective employees feel a little too comfortable and are not motivated to try harder

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the good atmosphere as it is currently. But give some more attention to under performers.
