Started off very promisingly but management ineptitude contributed to a rapid downward spiral.

Pros

Good brand recognition within the industry, and therefore good ability to develop professional network.
Nice office space and competitive benefits packages offered to staff.

Cons

Incredibly poor management and leadership. Very little (if any) interest taken by senior management to help grow, develop and reward staff.
Regular misinformation communicated by management to staff re: state of company's financially and business-wise.
Consistent downsizing across the company throughout Q1 2011 done over a number of months, rather than coordinated and all at once.
Staff morale across the board very low.

Advice to Management

Listen to you staff, reward the achievers, and be candid with your employees about the state of the business, the company mission, etc.

    Pros

    Tons of food and some great social events too
    Neighborhood cool if you like being near the ballpark
    Good pay
    Thursday all hands meetings informative

    Cons

    a lot of unhappy people working there - negative morale is like a cancer there
    to get there you have to go through a seedy neighborhood

    Advice to Management

    There are people there who are really hurting morale, get rid of them and replace with positive, upbeat, hardworking folks. Manage with respect and not intimidation.
