    Pros

    Semi-flexible working arrangements means working from home is acceptable. Lots of travel involved to some really cool places (although recent cost cutting is slowing that down). Decent bonuses each year (usually between 5-10%). 5 weeks holiday in the UK is standard. Lower level bosses and directors are usually easy-going and understanding.

    Cons

    The workloads can really stretch you. The reward for completing work is more workload. There are people in the company who don't carry their weight, creating more work for everybody else and they aren't even disciplined. They are just left to themselves. The lay-offs affect the company globally meaning everybody has to suddenly do more than one or two positions at once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Marketing department is a useless, expensive and elitist waste of time. They have most of the influence over product development but know nothing about what the customers are needing because they never see them. Something has to change.

    Pros

    People are good, 401K is good, PTO better than most. Lots of opportunities to work with global customers and some interesting new products.

    Cons

    Some projects can be very stressful, the product lifecycle doesn't seem to be incorporated into delivery very well, focus on completing the product rather than what needs to be done to actually deliver it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more holistic view of the company so that all the departments are on the same page.
