Compensation. Benefits. Work/Life Balance. Breadth of products.

Not always on the cutting edge. Not as visionary as competitors. Stock performance

    The leads truly care about their teams, and really care about the product and mission. Your work affects millions of users and you get a chance to work at the forefront of enterprise and consumer technology.

    Pros

    Great benefits, bar none, smart and engaging people, fast paced

    Cons

    Some managers should not be people managers, performance rating system could be challenging if you get one of these managers, difficult to move around

    Advice to Management

    Really focus on the people and don't rely on one persons assessment of a team. People who accomplish the day-to-day should know they are valued.
