A big company trying to restructure itself: a few exciting opportunities rising amidst heavy politics and processes.

Lead Software Engineer (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsFairly stable environment (safe the occasional massive 30k layoffs)
Good health benefits
Possibility to stand out through quality work, and take ownership of projects.

ConsVery process oriented - too many cases of processes taking precedence over common sense.

This creates a fertile ground for office politics - much more than usual based on my experience.

No kitchen/office perks - absolutely nothing - water and coffee are the only guaranteed goodies you can expect, safe the occasional fruit basket and biz lunch left overs. Probably qualifies as the worst place ever when it comes to perks - almost comically tragique when compared to any other company of the bay area.

Advice to Senior ManagementForget the processes and politics for a moment, pay attention to insider suggestions and innovations.
Get real about kitchen perks.
