    Pros

    One single pro: The work is wonderfully interesting and co-workers are, for the most part, talented.

    Cons

    Where to start... The sword of Damocles is hanging over your head on a daily basis, with layoffs on what seems like a monthly basis. Compensation is sub-par. The entire intent of the HR group is to squeeze salaries and benefits until retention becomes an real issue, then back off for a bit, then rinse/repeat. Development teams are about 80% staffed, but that's par for the course in the entire industry.
