    Pros

    Smart people, challenging work, passion for customers. Financially conservative as a company. Generous to those who perform. Acquisition by Intel a major win -- deep pockets, long-term view.

    Cons

    Very lean; tend to overload their best and brightest. Marketing focused on lead-generation over long-term customer advocacy and experience focsu, though with new CMO that may change.
