    Pros

    None. There is literally no good reason to work there. There are many great opportunities elsewhere.

    Cons

    Extreme micromanagement. Your day will literally include a full morning of status meetings with different colleagues. Then you will have about 1-2 free hours to work on your assignments before your afternoon meetings begin. You are also expected to join meetings after hours for manual deployments that can take up to 2 hours from 10:pm to 12 midnight, insane. Too may disparate data systems and many systems are not stable so the majority of work will be to fix system issues. You will be a software janitor and it's not rewarding at all. The team is chock full of people ready to compete against you for your position because advancement in this company is virtually impossible, the employees refer to it internally as a glass ceiling. It's very toxic depending on the team you work for. Managers will throw you under the bus and will immediately take credit for any positive deliverables. Lastly, don't expect any good ideas to ever get implemented. The amount of red tape and bureaucracy in order for anything to get done is an extreme impediment. Oh, and this place is not an Agile shop even though they claim to be. Its not. They will expect you to be a business analyst, scrum master, developer, QA tester and DevOps person all bundled into one with such a lousy salary. This company operates like it's still 1999.

    The company is quite large, so the environment is not for someone who is used to a small office environment.
