    Pros

    Some of the smartest people work here, the projects can be fun, you get to work with fortune 500 brands. The unlimited time off is nice, but I am betting that will change now post IPO.

    Cons

    Terrible health, 401k benefits. That used to be offset w/ generous stock options, but that isn't worth what it used to be now post IPO.
    Raises and promotions are virtually non existent.
    There can be quite a bit of political maneuvering and back biting within groups.
    They have over hired a layer of middle management rapidly, and many of those new hires are incompetent.
    Turn over seems to be rather high or increasing rapidly, either by people leaving or people being let go.
    The entrepreneurial and startup atmosphere has dissipated considerably, and is transforming into your standard corporate culture (dare I say Dell?).
