    Pros

    The people I worked with were all great. The project was challenging and the environment was good. Their Expert Engineer Program is excellent.

    Cons

    Getting simple things done can involve a lot of effort. The company has centralized everything, so you end up dealing a lot with faceless teams spread all over the world who have no idea about what you are trying to do (and don't really care either). One example, I tried to get a piece of software that was essential to my job (I was setting up a brand new team so nobody previously had need for this type of software). The request got bogged down initially in the request system (rejected with no explanation multiple times), then in getting approvals (dozens of them required, most people in the list having no idea why they are on there), then in having legal review the license, then in payment, then after all that actually getting the software delivered took forever. All of these processes are separate, and you are expected to just figure everything out yourself. The teams don't coordinate and bounce you back and forth, and the internal apps to mange this are all comically bad. It took 8 months to get what I needed. Anything that is non-standard is like this

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to navigate the company, create streamlined processes and reduce the siloed nature of teams.

    Benefits are good but compensation can be hit or miss depending on many factors

    Retain skilful & experienced staff longer
