Pros

Good compensation, challenging work, market strategy is solid

Cons

Constant black cloud of "limited restructurings" (lay offs). LRs have become a perpetual every six month occurance. It's not a lot of fun to work with a constant fear in the background.

Advice to Management

We pay you to come up with better strategies than "LRs". Do your job.

    Awesome people and culture. Great opportunities.

    Due to the size of the company, it feels bureaucratic from time to time. But still an awesome company to work for.
