    Pros

    It is a great place to work with strong culture irrespective of the location one works in. The people are pretty smart and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The management direction until the now has not been that great. It remains to be seen what will happen with the new CEO at the helm. Many projects get canned after a lot of investment which is a loss both to the company and its people

    Advice to Management

    Transparent communication and clear strategy/goals is required to move the company forward.

    Pros

    Great place to learn: companies with this kind of scale can be counted on one hand.
    High-performers are rewarded extremely well for the results they produce.
    Marissa is changing the culture is so many positive ways.

    Cons

    The mistakes of the past are still being paid for. (That being said, Marissa is doing all the right things to fix that.)

    Advice to Management

    The recent changes are in the right direction, and the rapid pace of change is good to see. Keep it up!
