Good place to work

Software QA Engineer (Current Employee)

Pros1. A good technology company with prospects for future growth.
2. I have seen considerable growth in the past few years.
3. Benefits package has improved quite a bit in the past few years.
4. Decent work-life balance, except during production issues.
5. Strong top-level management, and talent pool.

Cons1. The stock price has taken a beating, but I hope it will recover when the market rebounds.
2. Work-from-home is discouraged a bit. This may not apply to all the groups though.
3. Fast-paced environment and limited opportunities for training and learning new skills outside the group.
4. As for any service company, production issues need at most attention, and can be demanding.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire good talent at all levels, not just at the top-level.
