    Pros

    Unlike other companies, a developer is not a mere developer, but a lot more. Like customer focus, contributing to program management is also expected

    Cons

    Being a big company, there is friction between teams, there is not a very effective channel for intra team communication.

    Review system is not really transparent

    Pros

    Great place to be an engineer, lots of flexibility and perks plus room to build your own success.

    Cons

    My group had too many layers of management, resulting in a muddy vision and direction.

    Advice to Management

    Less politics, more leadership.
