Pros

Overall the employees are smart and you feel you are working with good set of engineers
Good compensation which includes equity

Cons

Big company with a small company attitude
Everything should have been done yesterday and willing to work crazy to do it soon w/o knowing how it fits in bigger picture
You won't know where you are heading - you would know company's direction but won't know where your group is heading

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mid-level management should be more sharing, open and collaborative

    Pros

    Great Company with many good engineers (for now). Again, emphasizes "engineers" only.

    Cons

    Significant cut back compensation. No more vacation days. If you are good friends with your boss and his boss, you get promoted, great vacation, and raises. If you are not, you are off to deep end without a future nor vacation days. A lot of unprofessional stuff continues on a regular basis for years now. Director and his managers use angry red faces and profanity at maximum volume as ways to get engineers to finish their jobs. Weekly meetings are always your highlight. If you get pulled in behind close door, then detail cannot be provided here without being censored. Bad work and life balance. HR is just a word in this company. They don't really physically exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior executive management should pay more attention to what goes on in all locations.
