    Pros

    You get to work with some of the most talented and pleasant people in the industry.

    Cons

    Employee layoffs are quarterly; no stability. Most people don't ever see it coming. The practice of having security escort laid off employees off campus is abhorrent. This is done to employees who have stolen or are getting fired - this should not be done to good people who have given their all to the company. How can you justify treating good people this way? It is unconscionable. And it conveys to the remaining employees how very little they are valued and how expendable they are... which does not help motivation or confidence in the company.

    Advice to Management

    It is clear to employees that you do not value them, despite what you tell them. It has permanently damaged the company culture.

    Layoffs are common creating an unstable work environment

    Pros

    Access to resources to impact your position.
    Awesome Work / Life Balance
    Easy access to senior leadership
    Transparency to see the results of your work effort

    Cons

    Poor communication on overall Vision and course correction to accomplish it
    Lack of communication and response from design product teams to improve new products for client needs

    Advice to Management

    Need to ensure that product design teams have a clear and concise focus of the product from an end user perspective and not just a focus on the capabilities of what the product can do. A truly successful product takes the end users and client concerns into its direct design rather than trying to catch it up on the back end after it's release.
