Pros

I have some great colleagues who are always willing to help. There is also a good spirit inside the company with good and regular feedback mechanisms. Benefits packages are good and there has been (until now) excellent training avalable for personal and professional development.

Cons

It's a very large company, so there is a feeling on anonimity. This is even worse if you are in a satellite company away from the HQ - or even outside the US. We do struggle to compete against the big players in some markets and I feel a lack of commitment sometimes to be competitive.

Advice to Management

Get a bit more consistent in your buniess approach. If we want to get into a buiness / opportunity area we need to stick at it and resource it properly. I have see many instances where we hae changed direction 90% of the way towards getting the biz. This destroys customer confidence. Lets drop the soundbites and get some real actions going.

    Pros

    quality of work is pretty good compared to its competitor.
    brand name in India is great among the engineering fraternity.
    work environment is cordial and you don't feel out of place. Follows flat culture. There is free technically challenge even
    your seniors.
    Stable company due its business startegy. Tries to forsee the the future issues and takes corrective steps.

    Cons

    -> lesser pay compared to similar company. (India)
    -> lot of cost cutting.
    -> facilities are just ok to go .
    -> laptops are given only to very senior people. hampers productivity.

    Advice to Management

    People are promoted on the basis of what a person has created a impression on his seniors.
     sub ordinate / junior feedback is also important.

    At times rather most of the time people have multiple/ different personality for people above and below.

    Pros

    It's free here. You can ask any technical oriented questions you want to, and everyone who knows it will be willing to answer it for you. Most of people here are friendly, and nice. I made many friends in this company. To me, this is not only a place to work in, but also a sweet home to live in.

    Cons

    Technical training is still not enough. Sometimes bosses just don't know what we would like to get.
    We all want to learn more, and to be better and better. Trivial works just make everybody fatigue without any sense of accomplishment.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone wants to be better in the future. If you could not offer a channel for advancement, nobody will be willing to stay in the same place for a long time.
