The company overall is a great place to work for, despite the short sightedness of its executives and board of directors

Pros

some really smart colleagues, very good compensation and excellent health care package, relax atmosphere, work / life balance

Cons

senior management and executives continue to make mistakes after mistakes...they never seem to learn. it's hard to work for a company that you know is not going to go anywhere...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen and be open minded...learn from other successful companies (and not Microsoft). Stop employing people from Microsoft. They're good at one thing: politics.

    Pros

    The people are wonderful. And they are motivated to do the right thing.

    Cons

    fractured internal structure and not enough accountability and ownership of issues. Too big to effectively use matrix and not enough recognition for the folks who do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear. Be direct. And make sure you tell us what's up for negotiation and what isn't.
