    Pros

    Engineering driven organization that took good care of it's people. Lots of perks, great people, fun to work at.

    Cons

    Engineering driven organization that took bad care of it's products. Never really profitable outside it's core business of hardware.

    Advice to Management

    Software is just as important as hardware.
