    Pros

    Huge diversity of opportunities, and pretty easy to transfer around
    Amazing peers
    Great compensation\benefits - company really looks out for employees
    Work on high profile products

    Cons

    Some product teams complain of politics (others don't at all)
    Some products not well received, especially annoying when due to micromanagement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give product teams more autonomy
    Encourage (with a stick if necessary) product teams to play nicely together
    Restore the influence of top engineers on product design

    Recommends
