    Pros

    Massive fortune 50 company, looks like it will be around for a while. Growth opportunities, as long as you're willing to travel.

    Cons

    To much information for one person to process, literally have 12,000 emails just in one of my 100+ email folders, HR policies discriminate against heterosexual relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to see your entire team more equally, if you've got members working different shifts, maybe it would be nice for them to see you more than 10 minutes a rotation.

    Pros

    Lots of possibilities to move around, lots of friendly and smart people to work with. Lots of great products and innovation going on. Innovation is encouraged.

    Cons

    The hiring process has brought in too many engineers that just know java. Not much uniqueness, just people who can code interview questions. Ltos of operations, handled by engineers oncall, which eats into coding time. Web developers are often seen as second class to "software engineers" even though it is a different type of job, different skill set. Its near impossible to move levels

    Advice to Management

    Create 20 levels, so its more rewarding and easier to achieve. The more people see people achieving levels, the more they are going to see the possibilities of doing this themselves.
