    Pros

    Decent Pay, great benefits, great group of individuals to work with, cool technology, training is decent and you get time to do it.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Claim to do away with the bell curve about every two years, but simply redefine it to keep doing business as usual. Very little reward structure in place without blatantly backstabbing colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Hope the new CEO actually improves things - with Bill at his back this may actually be a possibility. I'm pretty doubtful though.

    Pros

    Smart people, good benefits, flexible work environment

    Cons

    Very political, roles can feel very laser focused and hard to see contribution of your role to vision of the company. Teamwork is still secondary to individual performance.
