Good, but not as good as it was.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Wilsonville, OR

ProsWorking environment (mainly offices, few cubes)
Corporate culture among long-serving individual contributor employees counters sometimes seeming indifference of senior management.
Wilsonville isn't in California. :-)
Vacation accrual went through some bumps, but is now back to where it was (2 days a month).

ConsMove to Wilsonville and you may never be able to leave.
If you are not working for a big revenue product, get ready to live in the shadows.
Banked vacation maximum reserve is down to 10 days from 24. No more long breaks - take it or lose it.
Option grants have atrophied and MENT is not managed as a growth stock aimed at increasing shareholder value.
Do not count on a bonus.
Employee Stock Purchase Plan has been cut to a 6-month look-back (industry norm) rather than 2 years.
Layoffs are invariably stealthy and seemingly without warning.

Advice to Senior ManagementFix sales and revenue recognition and quit buying companies only to see the revenue disappear in a cloud of large deals with low access rates and cannibalized product sales.
Carl Icahn might have a better perspective.
