Pros

It is well established global company that is the leader in its field. You will find some of the brightest minds in the world working here. The experience will help you wherever you decide to go with your career.

Cons

As a large company goes, it can be quite overwhelming to work here. And there are times when the workload may impede on your work-life balance. But, if you can manage it, you will be fine.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, flexibility, you can make your job whatever you want it to be, you are in control

    Cons

    Constant re-orgs, just as you start to dig into your work, your role may be changed

    Advice to Management

    Need solid leadership direction at the middle management level. Senior leadership is strong, but not as it cascades down to GMs and directors.

    Pros

    Humble, always questioning ourselves. Continue to be surrounded by some of the smartest people one will ever meet. Diversity is strong across most groups, leads to a well rounded approach to customers/products. You build a career here and are constantly growing vs. 'getting consumed and burnt out' that is becoming so common for other companies in the Seattle area.

    Cons

    Underdog in many markets these days, frustrating to read tech press and be faced with constant bias and 'uncool' campaign. Looking forward to the day when the facts win out.
