    Pros

    Some good people at mid level management that teaches you and try to point you in the right direction.

    Cons

    Upper management including CEO, CTO, COO and the dozens of VPs that are literary clueless and so call “lead” by knee jerk reactions. Consistently tearing employees down when they fail to meet “expectations” that change on a monthly basis. Management team that love never ending “meetings” and instill an environment of “you are never good enough” atmosphere. Work-life balance has gone downhill since the new Prez, CEO or whatever his title of the month is took over.

    Pros

    Meet some cool people. Learn a lot of the industry. Good work/life balance. Your experience is what you make it as with anything.

    Cons

    Not the greatest company to work for, but honestly a lot better than others. Many politics involved. Can see the division of how they are trying to westernize the company, but older heads are still stuck in their ways. Can be hard to advance for people under those management. Job Security is not stable at the moment.
