Pros

Challenging technology in a fast-paced environment
There's never a shortage of fires that need to be put out.
Plenty of room for growth.

Cons

Work doesn't always get recognized within such a large company. It's up to you to make sure you are heard.
Yearly employee reviews often times don't make sense - they are rather subjective, and lack consistency across groups/departments.

Advice to Management

Make more of an effort to recognize employees. Reduce silo efect between departments. Don't skimp on raises simply because there's an excuse to - in other words, take care of those that do the hard work.

    Pros

    Good focus on new technology. Work environment was challenging but not negative. Personnel were talented and committed to a good job.

    Cons

    Very cyclical industry--business has high peaks, low valleys and business can overreact. Competition between sites (to be expected) leads to some politics and frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Need to keep the between site competition to a minimum to avoid a not invented here mentality. Don't overreact to short-term market changes at the expense of long-term viability.
