    Pros

    Back in the day this was a great place to work, lots of energy and people cared about the brand.

    Senior management is incompetent they manage by re-org, the talent is being wasted and big titles are handed out based on friendships.

    Pros

    Great benefits, smart people, competitive salaries, fun environment, great industry.

    Cons

    Unfocused and inexperienced management, too political, change in executive leadership every year. Flavor of the month type of projects - they don't work out, then layoffs and change focus. Performance is based on a curve and if you don't have a good relationship with your manager, can easily end up on the bottom, even if you performed very well.
