    Pros

    Excellent compensation and benefits. There is an infinite amount of work to be done and some excellent people there. Some of the technology is very good. The company has very deep pockets for whatever hardware is needed.

    Cons

    The company values speed-to-market over everything else. However, when bugs are discovered, there is all hell to pay! You are expected to support what you build. In some groups, this is no big deal, in others, it is a large burden. A lot of the technology used is proprietary. In general, even though this is a software company, they really don't know anything about software or software development. The focus is entirely on adding new products and features with no consideration to quality of product or software reuse. The culture is to work very hard. One is discouraged from taking lunch. There is no communication or sharing between groups. Thus, someone two rows away could be doing almost the exact same thing!

    Advice to Management

    I honestly do not feel that management would either listen to anything I had to say here. Further, I don't believe they would change anything!

  2. Great learning experience

    Pros

    It is a meritocracy where you are rewarded for your contributions. Lots of ownership leading to a good learning experience.
    As a firm, it is quite nimble and flexible.

    Cons

    On call through the week and some weeks are quite bad.
