Pros

Fantastic products, stable company, inspring vision, good compensation, work/life balance is encouraged (definitely moreso in some teams than in others).

Cons

There is little direction or guidance from senior leadership. Incredibly political. People are not recognized enough for their good work, so some really talented people just give up or do a half-baked job. The culture varies drastically from one division of the company to the next, but all are very political. If you are interested in working here, I strongly recommend asking your interviewee questions that will help you assess the culture/dynamics of their team.

Advice to Management

Require all people with direct reports to take Situational Leadership courses, so they have a better handle on when to provide support and when to provide direction. Celebrate employees' accomplishments.

    Pros

    A large community of highly intelligent individuals. A high level of inter-discipline collaboration. Fertile ground for growing professional relationships and networks.

    Cons

    At times the attention span and level of commitment to initiatives by senior management changes rapidly. What was paramount one day is irrelevant the next.

    Advice to Management

    When making commitments to employees and teams, be clear on your objectives and remain as committed to your teams as they are to you. Take the time to listen to those employees closest to the work. Often some of the most innovative and productive changes come from the rank & file.
