    Pros

    Have been working for more than 3 years now. Good personal and work life balance. Some of the folks are extremely good and co-operative.

    Cons

    People management is very poor. One wrong manager, and everyone suffers.
    Internal transfers not very easy. Lack of transparency from people managers. Learning opportunities are very less. You need to focus on developing yourself on your own.
    HR is poor. They do not understand situations of employee but only listen to managers.
    No attention paid to the feedback you give.

    Advice to Management

    Hire good managers so that employees do not suffer. If you hire a dumb and stupid manager even if he/she has years of experience it does not good to the team and organization.

  2. Varies by team and "frugal"

    Pros

    Seattle is great. Housing was good. Pay is very good. Great relocation team.

    Cons

    Frugal means fewer and lower quality perks. Some of things we were given fell apart. Mostly importantly experience varies greatly by team. A bad team means a very bad experience, as you are yelled at and overworked. Overwork is the culture. You will miss traditional software engineering practices, as often release is more important than quality- disproportionately so and scope creep is out of control on some teams. Recruiting is slipshod, they disappear for weeks at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Better management practices for interns and employees. Some software engineering practices.
