      Pros

      The company offers high starting pay and yearly salary increment. Good work-life balance for most divisions. I've encountered managers who care about your progression and well-being.

      Cons

      Little room for creativity and new technology because of the risk adversity of senior management. A lot of red tapes. At the same time, I also have bad experiences with some of the senior staff. I have personally encountered a sexist boss as an intern -- I was assigned to his group by HR, but during our meeting, he basically told me that he doesn't hire women in his group. I have once consulted a DMTS in a field about an idea. He told me it would not work, before going to one of my project managers to pitch the idea a week later.
