Pros

This is a great company to work for. Very good benefit. And the company does reward smart, hard working people.

Cons

The review system has forced curve. The organization is matrixed, meaning you will only work on a small piece of the pie. However, considering the scope of the company, I think that is innevitable.

Advice to Management

The company has very structed management trainings, so most of the managers are ok. Leadership should focus more on strategy, so the stock price can be higher.

    Pros

    Good Salary, Work Life Balance

    Cons

    Managers are self consumed and motivated to undermine the effort you put in. Lot of politics.

    Advice to Management

    Empower and respect Engineers. Have good check on the managers because they abuse their power and get in the way of development.
