Friendships that were fostered in business. Certain technologies that were created. Well known company and name opened some doors.
Too difficult to accomplish anything. Poor management and continually hiring friends for upper management positions in which they have no understanding of the technologies or business.

Pay is "decent" , 3% automatic contributions for 401k from company, also % match of your contribution
No support from upper management for 'change' but constantly put down and scrutinized for no 'changing' culture. Lots of 'behind the scenes' actions that are kept from key players and borderline immoral Management is guinea pigs for cuts before rolled out to union The list goes on.....2

competitive pay is about the only positive thing i can say about this company but with the benefits getting as bad as they were i'm not even sure if the pay makes up for it.
Horrible management, GE bought our offshore service company and brought in their own management. They had no idea about our industry and no idea about our product. They didn't follow our policies or their own, if you had an issue and it actually fell under a policy they would just change the policy or ignore it all together. They skimped on everything from tools, supplies, software, you name it, it wasn't uncommon to bring something from home just to be able to complete a job. There was also a horrible attitude when it came to the customers so long as the customer didn't know it was wrong then it was okay. This attitude was directly from our upper management and just had a trickle down effect. It was definitely a blame game with very little accountability.1

Big and stable company, fair benefits, some smart people work here. Training is available and the company is willing to invest in their employees
Too many politics. Poor management. Fierce competition to show results to upper management without really adding value to the business. Very chaotic organization without clear processes and documentation.

Taking a giant company that has been around for years to the next level. Evolving company culture to attract millennials and empowering intelligent employees. If you have good ideas, they will be heard! Relaxed dress code (jeans Mon-Fri) and upper management and executives are easily accessible and encouraging.
Acquisitions can make things messy when not consolidated. I can't really think of any con so far from my experience.1

Overall, a solid company with talented, smart people. Incredible amount of investment put into developing people with leadership training. Lots of learning and networking opportunities. Great benefits.
Inability to capitalize on talent due to constant 'hair on fire' mentality. Nonsensical sense of urgency put on EVERYTHING. Output was not valued. Put in insane number of hours for below-market average salary. Upper management is completely oblivious to struggles in execution due to lack of communication from middle management. Leadership is a clique and constantly changing. Impossible to maintain (and therefore execute on) a cohesive vision.

Peers are almost always great people and a joy to work with. Most managers truly care about their employees.
Upper management keeps much close to the vest hampering the ability for orgs to achieve common goals. Politics and constant org changes exist as would be expected in any large organization but it is manageable.

Great experience and people to learn from. Looks great on the resume. The company has many opportunities for development and you can take your career in any direction that you want to go. The people were extremely friendly and welcoming to the company. You can talk to your senior manager when ever you need to, no need to schedule an appointment. They give you plenty of responsibility, as much as you can handle. This gives you direct vision by upper management and opens the potential for career progression.
Some of the locations are not ideal, but you could transfer within the company to another location that may be more suiting for you.
