Pros

Great benefits and nice to be downtown. If you're lucky enough to be in a good department, you can perform well but don't expect to grow your career.

Cons

The company drives their best talent out. If you don't tow the party line you will not be successful. Some departments are gossip pools and if you're not in the clique you're a bad worker Very political organization, it's not about your work. It's about kissing ass

Advice to Management

value your employee assets. Get rid of poor performers. Provide feedback more than once a year. LISTEN to your team, don't ignore them.

    Pros

    Excellent, very smart people. Working on plenty of great ideas and cool products. Despite company size, this place still feels like one big family.

    Cons

    sometimes no clear focus of future products, information doesn't always disseminate through the ranks (as is common with large companies), benefits could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to propagate strategy and vision in a clearer way through the ranks, also improve feedback system.


  2. Good place, hope it stays that way.

    Pros

    Friendly people, comfortable environment. Pretty forgiving on off time and generally don't micromanage. Much better than most start up like shops.

    Cons

    Transitioning to a larger company vibe. In an awkward phase in between being a small start up driven by engineers to a larger shop driven by management.

    Advice to Management

    Value the engineers more otherwise you will see them leave in droves. It is harder than you think to truly trap solid talent.
