    Pros

    Good work life balance and company takes care of you and rewards you for what you have done. Generally mangers listen to your suggestions as your peers (not as subordinates).

    Cons

    It is a big company and career advancement is a little difficult. A big part is of course your contribution but at some point it also depends on your manager's connections and ability to stand up for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions should become more transparent

    Most part of the work might not be that much interesting in test. People will be friends in their own groups and most of them are here for ages, and it takes time to break into them and mingle.
