Pros

big company, decent salary, certification money is returned once you pass the exams, lot of competition between peers makes you want to work harder

bad management, too much politics, management doesnt know anything about the technical aspect, too many people, very disoriented teams with no focus.

Advice to Management

learn to connect with team members, know the technical aspect of the products as well, dont be blind to people who just suck up to you.
