    Pros

    There are free snacks and sodas. You can get free designer sunglasses every year with your free vision insurance.

    Cons

    Sales department is known to be dysfunctional. Be prepared for bullying, gossip, jealousies and passive-aggressive comments. Senior Management is young and immature and all hired from within, so their idea of "corporate" is perverse. I witnessed major revenue-affecting mistakes being made and covered up by management. I witnessed management verbally threaten to ruin young executives' careers. I witnessed management stretching the truth and omitting facts to get people fired. Feedback is vague and opinion-based, so if they don't like you there is no way to improve. There are no skip-level meetings or 360 reviews. The leadership team discusses your salary as a group. The sales teams are losing market share on core products, so quotas and pressures are high while commission is low. Low morale. Promises of career path are not for everyone. If you know someone in the company who will look out for you, go for it. Every decision is made by politics. Otherwise, be prepared. I wouldn't quit your Fortune 10 and move to a new state to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is probably no way to fix the culture of your management team that believes perception is reality. Good luck conjuring the future vision of your company and your $5B revenue goal.

    Pros

    Products are very timely. Lots of runway here. It is also impressive to work at a company that won't bash competitors.

    Cons

    Quality of tech support ebbs and flows, but investments there continue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where are the ownership (stock) benefits?
