    Pros

    Flexibility, Virtual work from anywhere.

    Cons

    Moving within company is hard than coming from outside. Its whom you know that matters than your performance and know-how.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shut the Employee stock programs for few years and Aggressive buyback of stock. Stock has been diluted so much, that its needs to cut it by another 1bn shares for the value to move any where. Cut work force - contractor, full-time by atleast 15%.
