    Pros

    Varied tasks and development opportunities to help you learn, grow, and succeed in your career. Great teams and smart people. Managers don't micro-manage their reports. Fabulous, open culture, with lots of communication. Like a big family. Love the products.

    Cons

    Too much regional confusion as a result of global teams; took forever to make decisions without accountability. Needed to give regional teams more autonomy. Highly understaffed due to layoffs. Laid off in the end.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Friendly coworkers. Good salaries. Good in-house cafeteria. Happy smart coworkers. Innovation was valued and encouraged. Was very happy to be part of the company.

    Cons

    Due to changing competitive environment, lay offs were always a topic. As such, there was an definite sense of uncertainty about the future. Not knowing if your job was safe became a serious damper on the otherwise great atmosphere.
