    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    work life balance, great benefits, for the most part great people to work with, work remotely full time

    Cons

    no more perks, pay for your cell even though its work related, pay for internet even though you use it to for work, promotions in IT come every 4-5 years, salary and grade levels not at market rate, huge bureaucracy and too heavily process oriented in IT makes it difficult to complete projects in a shorter time

    Advice to Management

    provide career advancement every 2-3 years and promote the good and great workers. stock options or RSU's not worth it, so give more bonuses and promotions

    Pros

    It is a big company.

    Cons

    Management and people at the highest levels are not quality decision makers. There is a great deal of fear and silence to keep your job. If you speak up or try to fix issues you are not supported.

    Advice to Management

    Read more management books. Need more team work and support, less internal competition.
