    Pros

    Good engineers that took their jobs seriously. The benefits were good and the management at my south east site were also good. This is a company that started as an engineering company and usually treated their engineers well. Google is providing an even better employee experience. Possibly Google will define a winning strategy for their engineers to realize.

    Cons

    Several rounds of senior corporate management changes could not identify a winning strategy. Frustration set in at lower levels over conflicting changes in product and personnel management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define a winning strategy beyond being just another handset vendor.
