    Pros

    Practically unlimited resources; cuttting edge projects, Chance to learn new everyday & developers heaven. Great benefits. Freedom to innovate and showcase your talent

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics and unclear decision making process; The leaders dont always hold up to their end and are not held accountable for their decisions, oftern we miss out on great opportunities just because a leader failed to acknowledge the potential or initiative doesnt align with their initiatives; That being said, we still have great leaders who are role models.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your jobs! Please put more thought into strategies and future and hold yourself accountable, especially all partner engineers! And please have customer empathy!
