    Pros

    - By far the smartest people i've ever worked with, and most people are more than willing to help out when needed
    - Great opportunity for improving your skillset. You have the opportunity to work with a wide variety of projects and technologies
    - Good perks (health care, free lunch, etc, vacation/sick time, etc)

    Cons

    - As stated in other reviews, the image doesn't always match the reality. There's a foosball table, video games that we're essentially discouraged from using
    - Communication between marketing and engineering can use some work
    - Initial salary was good, but subsequent raises didn't seem to match up with management feedback
    - What others have said about the inherent "fear-based" way of doing things is definitely still there
    - Very little praise for a job well done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improved communication between marketing and engineering is still very much needed. A little praise every now and again certainly wouldn't hurt morale.

    Pros

    The work is challenging but the results from your efforts are immediate. There is never a shortage of complex problems to solve. The people you work with are all extremely smart, which will force you to perform at your best.

    I feel like I'm constantly learning and improving.

    Cons

    There was a negative vibe going on for a good part 2009 with fears fueled by the economy, but that's completely gone now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've set out to hire the smartest people you could find. Get them all involved in product decisions as early as possible.
