Pros

Good benefits, good salary and benefits, lots of training opportunities

Cons

Despite being a dot com, the pace of change is not what you'd expect. Re-orgs were the answer to communication and collaboration problems, rather than outlining clear strategies. Chip, the CEO, is a nice guy, but he's in the weeds on things and nobody who stands up to him lasts long.

Advice to Management

Chip - get some people in upper management who are willing to tell you the unvarnished truth and be open to it. Too many of your direct reports are incapable or unwilling to disagree with you.

    Pros

    great compensation, company parties, company perks, work at home days

    Cons

    So much red tape it takes 6 months to make the simplest code or product change. Middle management is not empowered to make any decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Empower leaders, cut out the red tape, be innovative. You've had the same ugly home page and search process for 10 years. Yes it works but it could be better.
