    Pros

    The company has a wide pool of talented individuals.
    Good benefits and competitive pay.
    Work-life balance.

    Cons

    Decision making is painfully slow and frustrating. Senior management is out-of-touch with the reality on the ground. Frequent layoffs. In last round of layoffs - several units in US were reduced to half their size - however number of management layers remained the same. Too few engineers, too many managers. Many projects end up with more powerpoint slides than lines of code.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from your competition and improve speed of execution. Focus on improving the company's culture. Reduce management layers. Make more decisions like "yes" and "no" and avoid decisions like "maybe" and "next week".
