Pros

- Great reach
- Great people
- Great resources
- Great projects
- Great perks & compensation

The fast-paced movement really aligns well with me.

Cons

Your life inside and outside of work will likely become blended. This may be okay. Many people at the company have become my friends.

    Pros

    One of the most recognizable companies in the business, laid-back, high influx of determined/capable young professionals.

    Cons

    The compensation was a bit lower than I felt it should have been.

    Advice to Management

    Be extroverted, open to teamwork, etc.

    Pros

    The office environment is good in general, also having a big name on your resume may be good for the future.
    Most of the colleagues are very prepared technically.

    Cons

    As company grows they are trying to cut costs, objectives are unrealistically set, bonuses and promotions are considerably lower.
    If you work here on visa, pay increases and promotions are slowed down even more.
    Mid management gets packed with responsibilities, the individual contribution is no longer relevant, the general philosophy seems to be "it's normal for people to leave the company" and that happens regularly after every performance cycle or stock vesting time.
    To counterbalance this, company seems to brainwash employees with slogans, posters are everywhere around the office to make "the culture", many company employees believe and talk with slogans.
    Life/work balance is simply set to "no life".
    I've seen managers complain if someone takes more than one week off in a row, or making jokes about family duties the first day someone returns from parental leave.

    Advice to Management

    managers promoted from engineering are not always able to deal with people.
