    Pros

    It was a challenging environment of constantly evolving products. I worked with an amazing group of people who cared passionately about what they do.

    Cons

    The revolving door of senior management, combined with a tendency of each new CEO to hire their own team as soon as they arrive has disconnected them from the people who speak to their customers everyday. Outsourcing support has led to a deterioration in the quality of support you can expect to receive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the peons, they know more about what needs to be done than you do. If you are going to outsource find a way to enforce requirements so that your customers are not wasting hours if not days working with morons who barely understand how to use basic tools like google

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    More opportunities to work on the cutting edge technology in the OS and apps side...but it will be preferable to be in the enterprise side due to the recent changed direction of the company

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for the growth in next couple of years
