    Pros

    Very good engineering talent, and some great people to work with.
    Salary is acceptable.

    Cons

    Company is clueless when it comes to actually developing a product the user will want.
    Spend all your time emailing, and on calls since teams are spread all over the world.
    Layoff's all the time. They just decimate the engineering staff every once in a while.
    Horrible earnings that makes the companies longevity questionable.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps management should try to develop products customers may actually want and like. Maybe the focus should be on building a profitable company and not acquiring unsuccessful ones.
