    Pros

    - Can be fun to work here
    - Unlimited sick time.
    - Flexible vacation and time off options.
    - Health benefits are o.k.

    Cons

    - Many employees in my group write their own reviews. This could be seen as a pro to some or a con to those who were genuinely interested in improving.

    Advice to Management

    It is important to advance in your career. As a manager, you should not neglect the people you manage while looking for opportunities to move up or on. These people are not stepping stones.

    Pros

    the company is huge and very diverse, one can swim his way through various positions, you feel being part of global village, steady salary flow and nice benefits, incl. some perks only big company can afford

    Cons

    no cooperation not only between large divisions but even within the same group between different product teams, you feel small part of the big machine, advancement beyond certain level is almost impossible, appreciation is almost non-existent, no compensation beyond salary because of bad stock exchange behavior
