Pros

Most of the people I have dealt with have been extremely smart and always willing to help. As time went on, the culture did become more open - both in the sense of internal communications and in the sense of being open to significant, radical changes from their conservative norms of the past. Benefits and pay were really good (though the benefits have been gradually curtailed over the past several years), good bonuses / stock options have been provided based on performance.

Cons

For a long time, the company had been extremely conservative in terms of senior leadership vision. That changed about 4 years ago; unfortunately the changes came way too slowly to make a significant impact on earnings. Company has been in a "death spiral" of continuous cutbacks, layoffs, and closings - and although some products have been modest hits, they have just not been able to capitalize on innovations quickly enough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen more to your end-users (customers), rather than relying solely on your carrier partners, to avoid lagging behind in technology and costs. Continue to be honest with your employees by sharing company plans and strategy.

    Pros

    Rotational opportunities. Good Benefits. Used to be flexible with schedules, but sounds like that is changing now with Google acquisition. Overall rating is based on pre-Google acquisition.

    Cons

    HQ in the middle of nowhere, soon to change in summer of 2013 to downtown. You need to know someone in order to move up faster than your peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
