Pros

Lots of growth happening. Layoffs are in the papers, but the company is in a transition period for the better. Meg is a great leader.

Cons

Extremely hard to get normal things done like procurement, staffing, and using off the shelf software. The company is so big that the checks and balances, even though are meant to protect, cause more harm than good. I've seen very bright people give up and leave because of it.

Advice to Management

Continue to make the right changes for the future.

    Pros

    The people cannot be beat. I have zero co-workers that I'd dislike working with. The environment is great, but management won't reward you or your peer's hard work.

    Cons

    You'll get fired as soon as the company needs to pull profits from somewhere. Engineering staff won't get funding they need to complete projects.

    Advice to Management

    Stop 'trimming the fat' out of the engineering department! Let's see some honest R&D for our growth instead of acquisitions!
