Pros

Chance to work on software used by millions. Very organized teams and workflow. Frequent reviews, they will invest in learning new technology.

Frequent layoffs, slow-moving corporate culture. Engineering seems to be safe from layoffs, it seems mostly middle management that falls victim .

    Pros

    benefits, travel opportunities, lots of training available, my fellow employees were almost all intelligent, well-educated and helpful.

    Cons

    Management seems to have a real problem sticking with projects and tend to cancel them on a moment's notice. Don't get comfortable in your position. Layoffs are constant.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what the company wants to do and stick with it. Maybe get evaluated for ADD.
