Pros

You'll be surrounded by smart engineers and exciting technical challenges. Excellent culture even though it is pretentious. The location, office, and free food are great.

Cons

Career advancement opportunities are not awarded fairly. Promotions are not a significant increase in compensation. Compensation is below market rates. There are no bonuses or 401k matching. Being a manager sucks. Senior management has acknowledged this and is investing in its managers more.

Advice to Management

Make career advancement opportunities fair and detached from the frequent reorgs and the opportunism that follows them.

    Pros

    Great office, great location, great food, smart people.

    Cons

    Complete thrashing on priorities, empire-building, doesn't have good handle on metrics.

    Advice to Management

    Really think about what has the most impact. Then, focus and deliver.
