Pros

Overall it's a very good company to work for. Most of the work is very interesting and cutting edge, especially in engineering & marketing. There are lots of opportunities to move around, both temporary and permanent. Benefits and perks are generally pretty good but perks will vary depending on the job. Management tends to be flexible on things like hours and telecommuting, again depends on the job though.

Cons

My only major grip is compensation - even in very profitable times (like now), annual salary increases are really poor, averaging only 2-3%, which doesn't even keep up with inflation (A very good raise is only like 5%, even on promos). Bonuses make up for some of that but they have also sharply cut retirement contributions, stock purchase plans and stock options over the last 10 years. Always negotiate the highest starting salary possible if you take a job here.

Advice to Management

We had an exceptional 2011 and yet we get 2.2% raises?? I am fully aware of the TCOMP package, but please, would it kill you guys to give us a decent annual increase that at least keeps up with inflation?? The senior execs consistently get double digit base salary increases but I haven't seen that for the average employee since the 90's...

    Pros

    Decent Pay and good benifits compared to others.

    Cons

    Management is a bunch of bafoons that think they can let a bunch of people go and the others will pick up all the slack. They call it "velocity" within the work place.

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at the moral of you're employees
