Pros

Great Benefits Plans and Employee Stock Options
Great Employee Discounts with partner companies
Wonderful Vacation Time and Sick Days and Personal Days

Cons

OK Pay, must work your way up!!
Many employees but work in small groups!
At my location, no parking and added extras like other locations. (No gym, cafeteria, or lunch room)

Advice to Management

I beleive too much is put on Managers and there is not enough time spent on individuals. Need more than yearly reviews to tell someone what they are doing wrong and need to improve on.

    Pros

    1. Flexible work/life balance if you work on non-critical projects.
    2. Excellent and open minded colleagues on the first line to work with.

    Cons

    1. If you work on critical projects, please prepare yourself to sacrifice your work/life balance, prepare yourself to work with the frequent high level management decision change.
    2. Very poor employee recognition, unless you are a kissing-ass type of employee.

    Advice to Management

    The management would not listen to any useful suggestions at this site. Look at the past several years, too many wrong decisions made.
