    Pros

    The people are pleasant to work with, but sometimes you can be really isolated.

    Many locations.

    Lots of room to learn if you find a good mentor.

    Cons

    Low wages.

    Upward movement is unlikely, you'll be stuck doing the same thing for even a decade before you realize how much time has passed.

    Older workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Promote internally with meaningful promotions. You'll lose your best talent to companies willing to pay decent wages.

    Pros

    Good working environment..Flexibility in most cases to work from home depending on your manager. Flexibility with work hours depending on your manager. Good vacation policy. Good insurance policies and trying to keep costs down for the employee.

    Cons

    Not really appreciated enough for the number of years you have worked at the company. Salary compensation is not really on par to market. Believe their policy of salary compensation is not based on the market area you actually work in.

    Advice to Management

    Should look into their compensation policies, either through employee compensation surveys, HR and or Manager policies. Even though it is part of the parent company, their policies differ from the parent company.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, flexible hours, always a new challenge. Large number of offices around world make for easy relocation while staying with a team.

    Cons

    Even though PLM makes money, corporate funnels it off for failing manufacturing businesses. Constant hiring and spending freezes makes growth difficult. Corporate parent is on an M&A binge so infrastructure teams are taking a hit.

    Pros

    Willing to hire entry level. Happy to invest in people. Will back you up if a project goes sideways.

    Cons

    Your career will go no where. No abilty to advance unless you leave and return. Only external candidates are considered for higher level positions.

    Advice to Management

    Start promoting from within. You have a wealth of people who are being passed over for promotion while you hunt for external candidates.

    Pros

    Excellent working conditions and great management personnel. Unlimited opportunity to learn new technology. Best PLM products in the business. Most work is conducted as part of a customer specific team. Great relationships between team members. Strong focus on customer relationships. Very good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Most personnel stay at the position in which they are hired but not all. Upside of this is that personnel become very competent in their role.

    Advice to Management

    Since career path is limited, put more attention on opportunity for salary increases.
