    Pros

    If you like working with intelligent life, being able to converse openly about deep technical topics without having to dumb it down, this is the place to be. If you like solving the most complex technical problems, this may be right up your alley.

    Cons

    Review process is an absolute disaster and encourages the whole "it's who you know" mentality. You can do an amazing job, not get along with a manager, and get brushed ignored, brushed aside, or forced out.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the review process. Different processes might work better for different business groups. It doesn't have to be a "one size fits all" thing.
