Pros

You will learn the fundamentals of your field and get a good idea of how a Fortune 500 company works.

Cons

It is difficult to be promoted or get a raise because they are very tight on budgets. Negotiate a good salary when you get hired because there are very few raises. Also, managers are very territorial and you may sometimes feel like you're working for the government or a large bureaucracy.

Advice to Management

Senior management is very good; much better than the very low approval ratings they were given by employees. But they're out of touch with reality and PR is very bad because they continue to accept large bonuses as the company underperforms.

    Pros

    The people are great at Brainware to work with. The products are great and the employees are proud of what their product offerings.

    Cons

    The culture can be workholic - a topic executive recently died of a stroke. The morale is not something to brag about - people working there are apprehensive about their job security. The company had a massive layoff last year with no prior notice/announcement to any employee. It is disheartening to see how the hard work you put on the job was not only recognized but overlooked so the company can make its revenue goals. The "restructuring" broungt about a 300% increase in revenue for the company.

    Advice to Management

    In your drive to post impressive numbers for the investors, consider how the morale impact on your workforce.

    Pros

    Good work and life balance. Flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Leadership is too conservative and unwilling to try new projects, looks too much at industry and competitors for direction. Aggressive outsourcing to Philippines and India.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to find new projects, instead of just focus on cost savings.
