Pros

Very relaxed atmosphere
Many bright people
Individual offices
Job security

Cons

The company has a split personality because of the merger. There are two styles of management fighting for control. There is the traditional command and control style that you see at most large companies. And there is a more modern approach to management that is very refreshing to experience especially at a larger company.

Unfortunately, it looks like command and control has the slight edge because the new campus is being designed with an "open" floor plan i.e. cubicle farms instead of respecting the private space of their professional employees.

Advice to Management

Decide who you want to be and hopefully choose right (i.e. respect the creativity and professionalism of your employees)
