    Pros

    Talented engineers. Opportunity to work and travel globally. Diverse career choices, you won't be bored.

    Cons

    Outdated processes that many just follow blindly just because "that is how we've done it for x number of years.". Too many management layers that moved around often, which caused lack of accountability and massive overhead for reeducating new people every year. Performance review kills innovation as the ranking quota is dictated.

    Advice to Management

    Up to the first vp level (from the bottom), the org is generally very lean. Between this and the highest GM, most could go away.
