    Pros

    intellectual, interesting things to work on, good pay, respectful colleagues, high prestige, decent work to life balance, managers are technically v. strong.

    Cons

    Not all managers know how to manage humans, search quality is very political, lack of company focus, turning into a hierarchical company.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should focus more on fairness between leaves in the hierarchy, building bridges between teams, and less tensions at the high management (international) level.
