    Pros

    Medium size company, great location, free lunches, good swag.

    Cons

    Sr. management has no idea what they are doing and has become a buddy network. No longer a fun place to work that has a good solid direction and no upward promotion unless you are already a senior level.

    Might be a great place to work in a year or two, but not right now.

    Pros

    Current CEO Brad Garlinghouse has plans to move this company into interesting territory.

    Cons

    Environment is still very political. Mid-level management only looks out for themselves, which has resulted in short-sighted decisions being made that effect the quality of the product. Very little room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Put more effort into thinking about the company and less effort into thinking about your careers.
