    Pros

    Convenient location and good product. There are many fun projects to work for if you can ignore the politics.

    Cons

    Too much politics, too many re-org. Too many ppl in management, some group is 1 mgr with 1 or 2 employees.
    After a re-org, some VPs (yes, more than 1) stayed and with no direct reports at all.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of many mid layers, stay lean. The top & mid management have to elimilate some of themselves, not just employees whenever there is a layoff.

    Pros

    The people are genuinely nice - some of the nicest, funniest people I've encountered

    Cons

    Revisiting decisions, again and again. This really has to stop as it impacts several people, not to mention morale.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate clearer and more frequently. Align under one clear strategy. Listen to employees more.
