    Pros

    Interesting work, good pay, benefits - very smart people. Tons of responsibility, ability to make impact. good life/work balance. Good all around.

    Cons

    I don't like living in Seattle and all real thinking comes out of there. Various orgs in competition with one another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more risk as the talent and thinking are there. Stop trying to please everyone. Get more young go-getters, innovators, in senior spots.

    Pros

    Love the education courses you could take, library, cafateria, work space (office) and computer equipment & building facilities.

    Cons

    they slog you to death, poor information sharing, for doing a good job your reward is more work without any additional compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be fair to engineers who go a good job.
