    Pros

    Fun work environment with smart, motivated and friendly coworkers and a focus on work-life balance. Great benefits including coverage for external training. The work is interesting and there is a lot of flexibility to expand an existing role into new areas in order to continue personal development.

    Cons

    The company is well staffed with great employees in upper management, which can make it more challenging for those looking for upper level promotion opportunities.

  2. Pockets of good, pockets of evil

    Pros

    Smartest people I've worked with anywhere
    Great benefits
    Interesting work

    Cons

    Poor management not managed out
    Competing with peers doesn't lead to collaboration (this is changing)

    Advice to Management

    Take employees' manager feedback to heart -- promoting great individual contributors to management is not always the best option.
