Pros

1. Build cool products
2. Can see every phase of product development
3. Great benefits

Cons

1. Cannot grow without sycophancy
2. Growing into leadership roles are based on a 'Management By Strengths' personality test. Which was taken when you join the company. Unless you are in red category you cannot become a leader
3. Not so great Compensation
4. Inconsistent performance appraisals

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do something to reward the talented engineers.
