Pros

Customers love us, we make awesome products and we get to solve technical challenges every day -- and the solution makes it into enterprise IT a couple of years later. The people are smart, and the campus is beautiful.

Cons

Planning leaves something to be desired. Sometimes there's a lot of scrambling at the front end, and the tail end of the release.

    Pros

    Interesting technology.
    A decent cafeteria (and nice cafe staff)

    Cons

    Loaded with barely competent front-line staff. You know the type... All "CYA" and no real effort.
    Many incompetents promoted to mid-level management. You know how... Connections.
    Upper management that pits team against team. You know the type... Ballmer acolytes.
    Too many folks too scared of keeping their cushy position to be genuine.

    Advice to Management

    Cash out and go home.
