Pros

Great place to start your career. If you're bright, work hard, take risks, and are willing to challenge the system a bit, your efforts will be recognized. Everything is done on a huge scale - this can be exciting.

Cons

There's a pretty stiff bureaucracy, which is necessary at a company its size. This causes us to be "late to market" on a lot of products in development, but hopefully a new generation of managers can breathe some life into the process.

Advice to Management

The company's been in a perpetual state of merger consolidation for the last decade or so. Facilities are worn out (other than the renovated headquarters) and there are few "extras" to make it comfortable. Most of us are used to it, but attracting the best talent is difficult when they compare the work environment to other tech and telco companies.

    Pros

    Pay is ok, friendly employees almost like a family.

    Cons

    Benefits are ridiculous, pay is random not based on experience...someone off the street with zero experience can immediately make more than someone with 5+ years...promotions are apparently based on WHO you know and not what you have accomplished. Management picks and chooses who they want to discipline and favoritism is blatantly rampant. Zero work-life balance and a very stressful day-day experience for most.
