    Pros

    Fascinating projects, brilliant colleagues, flexible hours, ability to define your own career, significant value on strong technical competency, beautiful work environment, strong value on creativity and ability to pursue business opportunities

    Cons

    Limited support for investments in R&D unless there will be a significant return on investment in the near term. Helps to be a self-starter.

    Advice to Management

    Offer stock options at very low quantities to more junior staff in order to promote pride in organization at all levels.


  2. Not bad at all until upper management worred that their bonuses might drop in the Recession

    Pros

    Good salary, moderate pressure, reasonable working conditions. Management is extremely poor about giving information and feedback. Overt favoritism on the part of management. Lack of consistency in treatment of employees. Failure to observe and manage problems, with preference going to an "everything is fine" attitude rather than dealing with problems proactively.

    Cons

    Overpriced benefits, management which threatens rather than enforces standards, Upper Management's obsession with the amount of money they can pile up at the expense of any other consideration.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so greedy. It's not always and only about YOU. Think about other people as human beings, not statistics whose only function is to get you another cabin at Tahoe.
