Pros

Good salary, good people locally.

Cons

Product teams spread across globe- led to communication, timing & management issues.
Virtual HR for remote offices with 200+ people not a good idea.
Not enough innovation, just integration, integration, integration of acquired technology.

Advice to Management

Lead by example, not by powerpoint.

    Pros

    It's an important industry, with world-wide impact. This makes for meaningful and satisfying work if you embrace the vision of the company. I'm impressed with the top-down communication as the new CEO--Steve Bennett--makes sweeping changes to revitalize this company.. as he did with his previous companies. There is a great deal of excitement in the company about its future.

    Cons

    As a large company, you may have to work hard to remain engaged with the larger vision.
