    Great when the stock is going up.... but career advancement is a political act, not achievement based

    Pros

    Stock appreciation! When the stock price is going up, you can make money. Raises and internal promotions are much harder to come by.

    Cons

    Workload can be huge, and mgmt will typically just put more work on those who are good, while being very slow to replace folks who are not. The controller at riverbed for years was a nightmare, but stayed on well passed the point of adding value.... not as true in other parts of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good mgmt. team, but now might be the time to sell the company. The resent stock price rise and number of years they have all had to cash out options indicates a good time to sell.

    Pros

    Fun lower level people who are social, lots of different viewpoints and software to get the job done

    Cons

    You have to be willing to put in extra time to get things done, this is a fast paced company that expects a lot in a short amount of time, there can be a disconnect between managers and those they manage, pointless meetings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having minor social interaction non-work related(having a coffee break, going outside for a minute, or even walking to lunch) with someone you manage will go a long way and don't talk about work, there are meetings for that.
