    Pros

    Everyone is unselfish because everyone loves the work they do. If you work hard, you will be given lots of recognition and compensated accordingly. Can't get better benefits and the salary is consistently at the top of the field.

    Cons

    If you want to live in a big city, you will end up living in your car because of the commute.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trusting your team and allowing everyone a shot in the sun. The cream will continue to rise to the top.

    Pros

    Exciting meaningful engineering work. Lots of forward thinking work. Great benefits for employees. Reasonable training opportunities. Very smart people to work with. The culture and corporate vision/mission used to promote the pretense of respect, independent thinking, pushing down decision making to the lowest level, listening and encouraging opinions but that has deteriorated significantly in the last few years.However, senior management and the new owners seem to have the right business perspective.

    Cons

    Favoritism for a core few who are put on pedestals. Prima donna behavior by those few are ignored by middle management which destroys the morale of others. Majority of middle managers have poor management skills and are only "promoted engineers or PMs" Middle managers provide little backbone in standing up for and supporting their subordinates - lots of politics and rubbing the backs of other mangers and higher management. Poor grasp on financial accuracy and the financial aspects of running a business. Lots of bad management behavior carried over from AT&T and Bell Labs. Poor tools and processes for running the business. No accountability, questionable decision making (inability to prioritize) at the middle management level. Managers make poor use of the expertise of the individuals on their teams and refuse to honestly listen to them and help support them.

    Advice to Management

    Need to seriously improve the quality of the middle management team. Need to replace them with real people managers who empower their teams and trust and facilitate individuals to do their jobs. You have some of the most talented and dedicated employees in the world - trust them and utilize their individual skills rather than micromanaging them because you think you know how to do it better. Improve the tools and processes which threaten to bring down the business. Honor and respect everyone in the company because they all hold important keys to your success. Don't put the technology and certain employee groups on pedestals which demoralizes others in the company.
