Good benefits

Typical blue-chip company with good pay and very good benefits. IT professionals are usually exposed to a variety of proprietary and open source software. A very beneficial corporate experience.

Overall average company

Work life balance. Interesting projects. Was there for 3 years and did not get any salary increase. A little bit of politics in the workplace. Not a place I would stay to advance my career
