    Pros

    Great benifits, emplyee stock purchase plan, health plan, reasonable pay, work life balance. Teams work well together with some oppertunities to relocate, learn new skills. Great volunteer seperation package for those not terminated, but encouraged to retire early.

    Cons

    Avoid posting oppinions on the internal or external social sites. They have zero tolerence for any reporting of anything that could be seen as not PC. Review process can be difficult. Suspect the early seperation package offers are used to prevent age discrimination lawsuits. Retirement eligibility is age 55 and 15 years employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limited promotion options in some fields. Requires active education and searches for internal hire options. Unless active in persuing growth, it is easy to get a NI rating even with excellent produciton, safety, attendence, etc records. Company seems to only wish to retain high achievers, so those not wanting student loans near retirement, may be invited to take early retirement.

    Anti disparagement clause may prevent full honest reveiws by some past employees and definately current employees.

    Pros

    Work-life balance determined by the employee, managers are easy-going as long as you deliver your work.
    Good benefits, great Oregon countryside and lots of places to see/hike. Great place to settle down.
    Good sabbatical benefits.

    Cons

    Promotions/raises tend to be allocated according to seniority (i.e. years spent at work) rather than individual success which can kill your ambition/competitiveness.
    High level management especially in the architecture/design area can be unsteady, I have witnessed many nice projects getting cancelled after months of work.
    Too much focus getting to develop the process technology and not enough budget spent on researching and developing new products/architectures.

    Process can sometimes get in the way of moving quickly and in the right direction (Velocity) but good management can easily alleviate this.
