Pros

Good benefits Good time off (3 weeks starting PTO with an additional week after 2 years, unlimited sick days, and good amount of holidays)

Cons

Extremely limited opportunities to transfer to different roles (as software developer title covers actual developers, business analysts, and software QA) without managers going to bat for you Relocation contract (10k penalty if you leave the company before 2 years) Managerial secrecy (some managers hide what role you will be doing until you actually start, leading you to get placed into a role you didn't accept but are stuck in due to the aforementioned 2 year relocation contract) Low pay for new college hires (degree dependent)

Advice to Management

Be honest with what role employees will be doing starting off. Additionally, guarantee them the opportunity to transfer to a different role near the 1 year mark if they want to move instead of filling those roles with new hires then saying there isn't any room for transfers.

Pros

Good work/life balance, including generous vacation time and management encouragement to use all vacation Some perks, like being able to take development cars home and not really have to pay for gas

Cons

Sexual harassment from day one! Complaints to management went unhandled and HR is practically impossible to find (the most you can do is email GM "People Services", which I did and never heard back). Other people at the company were not surprised to hear this and generally had their own horror stories of being sexually harassed and ignored by management. Toxic work environment. Constant bullying and sexism. Speaking up against it only makes you a target. More typical problems with a big company: no clear career path, mounds of bureaucracy.

Advice to Management

Make sure your espoused values (of diversity, equality, etc.) match what's actually happening to your employees and make HR actually accessible for issues beyond physical safety concerns.
