    Pros

    Nice facilities, well-funded labs, nice working environment, flexible benefits.

    Cons

    Forced-ranking produces toxic culture that focusses on picking on the negatives and finding easy victims. Works on a system of favourites and old-boys networks - it's more important who you're friends with than what you do. Culture is one of fear and paranoia.

    Constant reorganisations, cuts and closures.

    Rapidly declining revenues due to patent expiries make for a very uncertain future.

    Advice to Management

    Forced ranking didn't work at Enron, it killed innovation at Microsoft and it's doing the same to AZ.

  2. Overall it was a good experience until the last 3 years ~ Company culture changed
