Company Culture

most executives highly respected

Gender Equality

significant emphasis to hire more females

Attitude towards older colleagues

poor, disposable, layoffs and early separation programs target older workers worldwide

Career Development

no job rotation programs. most employees stay in same role for many years. career moves most often happen upon employee separations

Overall compensation for your work

competitive compensation

Office / Work Environment

trending more and more away from work-at-home flexibility - gravitating to the Yahoo model; used to be a role model for work location flexibility, but no longer

Work-Life Balance

expect to work a lot of hours; not necessarily a bad thing

Job Security

~yearly layoffs heavily skewed towards older workers; those that helped make the company successful
