    Full of opportunities if you manage your own career

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsVery diverse company with lots of opportunities if you seek them out. Vision of the company is exciting and enabling.

    ConsBig company can be hard to network/navigate. Some processes and policies seem outdated (for isntance, IE 7.0 is still the standard web-browser). Politics can get in the way of productivity, like in most big companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to invest in younger and more diverse workforce, and find more ways to develop middle management into new leaders.

    Very professional.

    Design Engineer (Former Employee) Riyadh (Saudi Arabia)

    ProsBenefits are at par or better than industry level. You can make your own decisions in preparation of design criteria, then discuss with your immediate superior. They give you room for your own development and advancement.

    ConsSenior shop floor personnel are left behind in terms of benefits. Some junior managers are withholding their additional remuneration.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake more care (benefit-wise) of senior employees especially those in the shop floor area. They are the ones who break mind and limbs so to speak, to accomplish a project.
