Pros

stability, good work life balance, depending on which team you work on you can get to work on interesting stuff.

the review system is a mess. you need to spend a lot of time telling people about the work you have done in order to be rewarded. the salary is somewhat lower than industry average in Seattle area.

Advice to Management

fix the review system.
