Pros

There were many good and talented people around. Work hours are flexible, though it may depend your manager. With the right group, you get to work with industry leading products.

Cons

The management and company bureaucracy is dense from time to time. I've went through a bunch of lousy managers and directors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I thought the staffing of a number of leadership position were wrong, but, what do I know, I was just a minion. I would attribute many failure to those decision.
