Pros

- Great technology - Lots of PhDs , very talented engineers, - Stable business with high market share - Good work-life balance

Cons

- Its difficult to be promoted internally to management - Folks have left and then joined back at two or three levels higher in a couple of years, while internally even after 'walking on water' one may move up 1 level that too if one has a strong manager. - Can be political like any other large organization

Advice to Management

- Focus on growing employees and making sure inequities are avaoided.
