    Pros

    Some great colleagues to work with. Some very smart people.

    Cons

    Company management won't care about you in the least, you would be lucky if you even set eyes on them. Working for a large company leads to some irrational choices, when you are just an employee number to them.
    Very easy to get lost in the system and there is no systematic way for you to be helped.
