Pros

* Interesting products to work on
* coworkers are competent but not arrogant
* good location (in downtown SF) ..and several other large offices in Sunnyvale, Boston, Bethesda.
* we work well as distributed teams
* we get our work done and have lives outside of work

Cons

There is always some process overhead and bureaucracy at a company this size.

Advice to Management

keep working to make the products best in class and let's keep some of the small company values that we still have.

    Pros

    The focus is in the right places - have a great product and have the best sales reps around to sell it. Put processes in place that make it easy for the product to evolve and for sales to do its job.

    Cons

    Historically teams worked in silos and had very little contact with each other. It is hard to get synergy among the groups without several meetings to make sure each group is ok with the plan. Some groups historically have been resistant to change as they have been in their own world for some years.
