    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 Management

    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

    Flexible Work Arrangement
    On-Site Gym
    Facilities well kept
    Divisions managed differently; therefore, it is possible to acquire same role under other leadership and have a better experience.

    Cons

    Plenty of managers, very few leaders.
    Employees aren't valued
    PMO within specific division is not valued
    Great teams, poor leadership. Lacks vision

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the people that work for you. Listening to what your directs tell you may not be accurate. Take a moment to walk around and better understand how critical decisions are being made and how they are negatively impacting the organization.

  3. Good for a first job, but won't keep you for long if you want a challenge

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits, nice, sympathetic people, flexible working hours. How interesting the job is depends strongly on the team you end up with. Unfortunately, some of them are really dull. Good if you want to get the feel of working for a big, serious software company and learn some tools associated with it.

    Cons

    While there are many great new projects starting at all times, there are also many positions aimed mostly at maintaining legacy systems and bugfixing. That, for me, is really boring, so I decided to leave. Also, there isn't much place for self-improvement or making a big career. People stay in one place, attached to their systems and technologies. If it's your first job, it should be good for some time. If, however, you're looking for a challenge, you can try searching through some of the more exciting opportunies, but you're probably better off elsewhere anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get young, talented people interested in the company or else they leave fast. Invest into offloading the old legacy systems that are inattractive.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, nice WFH policy, no micromanagement, cafeteria is top notch, awesome volunteer opportunities and many lunch and learn events during work hours.

    Cons

    Lots of cliques, segregated teams, no upward mobility-even though they say there is.,not good for the younger crowd, horribly dated products, no budget for anything, only cares about the bottom line. Huge layoffs in recent years, never know if you are going to be next.

    Advice to Management

    Do something, ANYTHING to keep your talent.

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Great people. Great facilities. Many learning opportunities

    Cons

    Salaries. Slow processes. Upper management is not qualified enough, and too much political game.

    Advice to Management

    Need to realize that if the employee is satisfied the company will be positively impacted, this implies greater salaries, more work and less talking.
