Pros

professional career growth great work place good camaraderie with fellow colleagues
career development advice and good work ethics
everybody is pushing for the same goals centered on the customer (big difference with Microsoft). Promotions are gated by well written promo guidelines with focus on delivery, and impact, not on internal politics. People spend less time campaigning for their own promotions (seen cons). Much better healthy relationships between teams/orgs/people. TOP performers are heavily compensated.”

Cons

Less levels than at MS, hence promotions are farther apart. Most individual contributor job families only have 4 levels (junior, mid, senior, principal) with very few people in the upper two levels.
Big raise on promotion happen less frequently. Average raises for the average people. Most people from MS usually come at one level down (principal -> senior, senior lead to MGR III).

    Pros

    Not a lot of politics. A good environment for solving problems and building cool things. Great internal tools, both for deploying and building services and for data storage, etc.

    Cons

    For a tech company, there is a large business side. This means you spend more time than you'd want trying to convince and work with the business instead of just creating cool products.
