    Pros

    Treated with respect and as a full-time employee. The work is engaging when there's is work and interesting projects.

    Cons

    Many instances when there's not enough work, there's mindless work, or work given to you just to keep you busy that the department won't utilize.

    Advice to Management

    Keep interns more engaged and work more consistent. Perhaps better training during the initial weeks will alllow interns to take on more tasks and projects as the internship progresses.

    Pros

    Interesting work. Lots of opportunities to see different things.

    Cons

    Senior management in my Division Love "Yes men".

    Advice to Management

    I don't agree with the philosophy of giving people the work and then promoting them after a year. If you are willing to give someone the work and responsibility, then give them the promotion at the same time.

    Current Employee - Software Developer in Boston, MA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Stable company -- seems to withstand bad economic times better than peers. The company's risk aversion makes it somewhat of an unexciting place to work for, but contributes to the sense of stability.

    Cons

    Typical downsides of working for a large corporation -- it often feels that your work doesn't make a difference. The corporate hierarchy is 8-10 levels deep, so a common worker feels very detached from senior management.

    Advice to Management

    I have every reason to believe that our senior management is highly capable,
