    Pros

    Great diversity of things to work on, good sideways and upward mobility and a driven leadership team.

    Cons

    Sometimes too many re-designs so products get delayed by a changing wind. Accountability could be better for both successes and failures. Work/Life balance can be a bit tough due to the global nature of the company. Get used to working in multiple time zones.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving innovation, but when it comes time to deliver - pick a plan and stick to it.

    Pros

    Good salary and relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    This is a old IT company so most of its projects are not fresh, and your colleagues are people in 35-40 ages.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs fresh man.

    Pros

    People are smart and fun to work with. Genuinely nice people. Pay is pretty good, comparable with Bay Area levels. Great work-life balance most times. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Poor quality of senior management and leadership. Too many older people. Need more young blood. Need more trained managers. Often, lot of planning and talking, but not enough action.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and retain talent. Else you will be obsolete quickly. Learn how to create efficiencies in organizations.
