Pros

Some really smart people to work with. If you work really hard and can prove yourself - you will be rewarded very well. But you need to be on "core" projects - that matters most to your group.

Cons

For working mothers, hard place to grow and keep balance between work-family. Extra hours put in close to any sort of release ( 60 hours/week ) is normal / expected but not rewarded. Amibition + hardwork is not enough - you need to be aggressive as well.

    Pros

    Great returns, incentives and job satisfaction. The company is a people friendly organization and knows how to keep employees happy.

    Cons

    Lack of mobilization in between roles and cross functions. Quite often results in an employee being bored of doing the same thing over several years

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the employee friendliness, but you need to do more to build in a leadership path for employees


  2. "Not the cult it used to be - far more a job now"
