    Pros

    Global Organization, Great Market forray, Technology focused for Systems and Processes

    Cons

    Highly Bureaucratic, most management is technology illiterate, technologist are just preferred for adhoc tech help not for working on strategic long term goals of systems , life cycles and their data and load thresholds

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will have to hire, respect , promote and grow technologist in your organization , or all you get is poor cadre of management which is solely reliant on vendors for technology consulting , resulting in huge costs for new sw, poor quality systems and very high life cycle costs , as is the case now

    Pros

    Company is decent with good benefits and facilities. However very political organization and lot of beurocracy. Work culture is good.

    Burecratic organization and lot of politics. Bonuses are very low in other divisions like finance etc so do not go by their variable pay promise

    increase bonuses in other functions or tell clearly upfront that bonuses will be low. HR misguides people by telling different bonus amounts
