Intellectually stimulating work environment, but can be difficult to navigate

Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

Pros- Smart and dedicated co-workers
- Wide range of options for career progression
- Work-life balance
- Strong senior leadership

Cons- Compensation possibly below market. Stock options/grants rarely given. Negligible discount in employee stock purchase plan.
- Can be difficult to navigate
- Promotions can be slow -- partially related to the fact that there is a lot of good talent.
- There seems to be a process for everything -- can get in the way of progress
- Constant re-organizations

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be afraid to take calculated risks.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
