Pros

Great opportunities, steep learning curve, excellent senior management, dynamic environment and the people are great - some of the best in the industry.

Cons

This is not the place for someone passive, if you don't get a response to an email, just escalate. Don't sit around thinking it is not your responsibility just because you didn't hear back. This is actually a pro as I dislike reactive behavior.

Advice to Management

Communicating the rules more openly would help new employees adjust more easily.

    Pros

    None, not a one, unless you like:
    Arbitrary and random decision making, (only by the most senior folks)
    Capricous and dishonest ethics
    Stingy and misery compensation and benefits that make Scrooge look like Mother Theresa

    Cons

    The above plus:
    Stupifying incompetence of management
    The most backward of business operations, make Frankenstein's bride look like a supermodel
    The most superficial and plastic of companies--reputation is so important, yet it does very little to actual merit a reputation (bad product quality, marketing hype, analyst hype, poor support), makes Barbie seem like a real person

    What makes you want to work hard? Incentive.

    Pros

    And there's lots of incentive to work hard here but you gotta be smart too. As the old saying goes "anyone can bend down and pick up nothing" but if you're smart you'll find you'll hard work will pay dividends.

    Cons

    If you're and Service Engineer and don't want to travel then that'll be a big disadvantage and if you're in R&D and/or Dev and aren't smart then go hide under a rock because you won't last here!

    Advice to Management

    Rotate more staff internationally. True, not many people want to work in a rainy island in the Atlantic but lots want to work in the US and/or Asia!
