    Pros

    Amazing benefits, high caliber coworkers, and unique products. This is a one of a kind company with a huge mission and a lot of corporate courage. Super star employees are the norm.

    Cons

    Engineering culture - this could be good or bad, just know what you are getting in to. Heavy bureaucracy in IT. Expectation of an affinity for HW and an EE degree or mathematical bias - other disciplines not really respected. But it IS a HW company.....

    Pros

    The pay is good, nice gym, free soda and pretty good health plans.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure, constant stress and pay raises have been falling behind real inflation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just stop it. We know there is a lot of competition but killing everyone with stress won't make the company more innovative.

    Pros

    competitive pay. actually cares about ergonomics. sabbatical every 7 years. opportunity to advance career. work for a company that actually wants to be #1.

    Cons

    management always protects management. advances some people who shouldn't manage people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get more honest feedback from employees about all levels of management and take action to fix the problem or remove the manager. some great teams are poisoned by one bad manager.

    Pros

    They have great benefits, they are a technology that should keep growing
