    Pros

    -Working with many awesome folks -Ability to learn -Great CEO -Cheap mass produced made in china products is great for business

    Cons

    -What product/feature to developed is groomed from what financial goal your group needs to hit instead of what is the best possible experience you can do for your customers -The performance review process is based on popularity contest, as it is mandatory 10% of the staff in your team receives the lowest grade, thus the rating process is based on who is perceived as high performers vs. quantifiable achievements. What ends up happening is those true top performers become victims to those that have the ability to manage up very well. So even if you are in a team where your boss has your back, it doesn't help if you don't stand out and have recognition beyond your team. -Pay is below industry average -No free food -Parking lot full when coming back from lunch

    Advice to Management

    Don't be such a hypocrite. At all hands, the message is always, "Be the voice of the customer" or "We want to focus on solving work life balance", but then turn around and tell directors and VP to focus on hitting their financial targets over quality, and to squeeze their teams for higher performance with less people.
