Pros

Benefits package was good, onsite gym, onsite day care facility, on site cafeteria (poor food though). Fairly good central location.

Cons

Constant fear of being laid off.
Lack of communication from Senior Management to employees.
Management making decisions to lay people off yet still flying their corporate jets and spending frivolously on their own personal enjoyment.
Dull monotonous environment lacking in inspiration

Advice to Management

It would be good for the senior managers to BE SEEN to be making some sacrifices themselves personally. It still seems like they enjoy the good life while laying off people and cutting back benefits etc.

    Pros

    - the laptops provided to work are ok
    - free coffe
    - beautiful place to walk after the lunch

    Cons

    - the products and how they are planned to real market really sucks
    - horrible management ... several teams trying to push bugs to other teams like each team is a different company.. the manager really sucks, do not understand nothing technically, the ego is very high..
    - if you are going to working in a integration team forget you have a life... I worked more than 5 month without weekends and 14 to 16 hours in average per day.
    - managers do not have ANY skill as managers.
    - technical leader acts as project manager and do not understand nothing about the code and product.

    Advice to Management

    - try to find a job in a regular restaurant like burger king or mac donald's... you are not managers...
