    Used to be a great culture but has turned into a bully culture.

    Pros

    Lots of smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Work-life balance issues really depend on how your immediate manager or their manager views the topic, for example, can you work from home or are you expected to be in the office. You can be held responsible to be in the office during the day but on calls early in the morning and late at night, again, depends on the work group. Pay is supposed to be among the best, but check it out because the pay is inclusive of a bonus that only is paid out if the company is doing well. You could find a better salary elsewhere. If you are hired in at a high wage, it may be years before you get an increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread the wealth to the folks who are doing the work. The pay system gives little reward to the folks who are supporting the few who are deemed exceptional in a statistically biased measure.

    Pros

    Some very smart engineers, few good technologies

    Cons

    Badly managed outsourcing model has killed the company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of those high paying IT managers who only care to check their emails and don't bother to attend to issues.
