    Pros

    Nice campus and facilities. Volunteer time off.

    Cons

    Company shutdowns force one to use vacation days or take days w/o pay ... effectively reducing your salary. Process, process, process. Too much process. Nobody is empowered to do anything or make any decisions. Too many layers of management, most of it wasting resources already in short supply. Too much time and effort spent on meta issues and meta-meta issues. Too much emphasis on being nice and polite _all_ the time. No room for those that don't drink the Kool-Aid. Management too focused on managing Wall Street numbers. Too worried about "optics" and spinning metrics.

    Advice to Management

    Thin the herd. Stop being "penny wise, pound foolish" and invest in R&D and QA.

    Pros

    Excellent products and desire to do the right thing for customers.

    Cons

    Starting to see the rigidity and slow moving beaucracy that comes with a larger workforce and it is eroding the traditional culture

    Advice to Management

    Get back the basic and find ways to reduce requirements on workforce, not force zero value requirements on us.
