    Pros

    Benefits are really outstanding. The people who work there are really smart and passionate. The pay is good. The products are much better than many people give them credit for. They are used by millions of people, so the potential for impact is quite high.

    Seattle rocks! Moutains, water, music, theater, film, technology, fashion; we've got it all.

    Cons

    Dealing with the negative feedback from other industry insiders. Losing the "cool factor" to Google and Apple. Large teams, legacy apps isn't for everyone. Working for a big

    Clouds in Seattle can get you down until you're use to the winters.

    Pros

    health benefits, pay, relaxed work environment, time off (5 weeks vacation and 2 weeks sick time per year)

    Cons

    cliques in management.. buddies promote buddies. management is made up of incompetent hillbillies and you wonder how they ever got that position.

    Advice to Management

    We have lost our ability to produce products at a pace that keeps up with competition. We have lost our ability to innovate and do great things for customers. We need to refocus on those areas so we don't end up like the dinosaurs so many other companies have turned into.
