    Pros

    Talented staff, great learning programs and resources, top compensation levels, opportunity to impact billions of lives through the technology

    Cons

    Top heavy with too many 1) males, 2) engineers, 3) senior titles. Currently undergoing a cull to protect net income figures. Too centralised in San Diego - all other sites/employees are low on priority. Too much politics originating from senior VP's being there since the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in employees with more diverse backgrounds than engineering/finance/law, otherwise you risk losing your creative/innovative dna. Time to grow up from being a family firm to being a truly global company.
