Pros

The Thousand Oaks campus is beautiful.

Cons

Work-life balance is very difficult to achieve. They have succession plans, but I never saw someone agreed on as a successor get the job when the incumbent left. Management typically goes outside for senior people rather than develop from within. The company is currently being dismantled. Look for work in other cities that have more options.

Advice to Management

Make your planned cuts quickly and make sure all the 2nd mortgages people took to move to the area are forgiven in total. No one in TO is going to be able to sell their house now that you're cutting back anyway.
