    We work really really hard. If you appreciate the challenge and opportunity to build and own something, this is for you. If you prefer to coast, you'll slide right off the cliff here.

    Invest heavily in your 30-45 year old high achievers to ensure we stay and build our careers with you, we can easily make more money elsewhere.

    Former Employee - Program Director  in  San Jose, CA
    Former Employee - Program Director in San Jose, CA

    Pros

    You get a vast number of opportunities and choices regarding the type of work that you do. You also are part of a truly global family, which is a privilege and a huge learning opportunity.

    Cons

    Because of its size, it is a little bit like "working for the post office". You are often so separated from the end-result of your efforts that you often have to search for the meaning of your day-to-day activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spinning wheels and concentrate on business-driven activities. An overhaul of the top tiers of executives would be a very healthy thing.
