    Pros

    Company allows autonomy in doing one's job. Flexible working hours. Little micromanagement. Opportunities for lateral movement. Great corporate history.

    Cons

    Direction of the company is muddled at the top - primarily the board of directors. Layoffs from time to time - does not add to a sense of job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick the markets you want to be present in, and stay committed to them. Do not send mixed signals.
