    Pros

    Insanely smart people everywhere (not just eng/prod). Looking for game changing ways to approach every problem. The food and shuttles are great benefits. You can end up working a lot but it's generally because you want to, not because you have to.

    Cons

    Has lost the start-up culture. It's big, it's political and it's expected. It's a gigantic company and compared to overall revenues and growth the company has managed to stay as "un political" as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

  2. Offers smart teammates, great compensation, and tons of perks

    Pros

    Managers that are invested in your growth/professional development.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be hard to get things done due to too many cooks in the kitchen

    Advice to Management

    Keep your reports in the loop on decisions as much as you can
