    Pros

    They are very organized as in there alot of internal 1-800 numbers and websites for different departments. Always ask to be on the pilot program for any new tech so you can use it two years before everyone else. There are lots of heatlh benefit choices, bring a notebook and a calculator ask a lot of questions during the yearly presentation. A little known benefit you get use accurred volunteering time to focus on a charity of your choice in addition to the official corporate volunteer week. So you can get paid to volunteer for a week, a month or more. There is an internal website with volunteer events to choose from. Some managers will pay for extra training, schooling or certifications. So if you have a supportive manager sign up for classes or order books to improve your knowledge. Volunteer to help other groups so you get experience with other systems and tasks. They have a decent corporate cafe with themed dishes. There is a really good Indian chef that comes in once a month. Their taco salad and Friday rooftop BBQ is pretty good too. During the holidays they have musicans perform in the museum. They serve cake and punch for the company's anniversary. My coworkers were always on the hunt for free food. They espcially liked the food gift packages abandoned in the kitchens around the holidays. They would attend career development meetings and get on email lists just to scope out the offerings at these corporate sponsored events. So there are plenty of free resouces, software, extra paid weeks off, self improvement classes and access to good food if you know the right people at this company.

    Cons

    An internal recruiter once told me that they only pay 80% or so of the listed salary for a open position. Why? So they is room for pay increases once you are hired. You must stay in a postion for at least a year before you can transfer. Hiring managers appear to prefer outsiders to insiders. Lots of positions are prefilled before they are posted online, as in they know who they are hiring for a role but the Staff Mgmt system generates a opening when there is none. S.F. is ground zero for lay offs at the moment. They lay off there and then turn around hire in cheaper and more business friendly states like Ohio and S. Carolina. Apply for open postions in any location, if they like you they will let you commute but your payrate may be for another "zone". A coworker once warned us to be careful of what location you work at, telecommuting or working in an isolated office can hurt your career. As in It's hard to prove yourself if you are not in the main office making connections with decision makers. The best way to move up is to move to Charlotte, make connections, or apply out of state. Ask good questions during meetings if you want to get noticed and build your brand image. Choose your manager well to make sure they will support your career, otherwise you will be in the same postion for 10-20-30 years. The place can be a lot like west side story during earnings season there's dancing, singing and then an entire group gets cut.

    Advice to Management

    Enough with the internal surveys
