    Cool technology, smart people, but a real 'in-crowd' mentality and lack of transparency from management.

    Pros

    Cool technology
    Smart people
    Collaborative atmosphere
    Good renumeration

    Cons

    Lack of transparency about what's going on and why
    Provincial mentality - very US-focused
    Technology may suffer 'innovator's dilemma
    Greedy!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve transparency of internal communications. Acknowledge when there are issues. Focus on the non-U.S. rest of the world.

    No opinion of CEO
