    Pros

    Small company feel with big company resources
    Employees cared about eachother
    Benefits were above average

    Strategic vision was too broad and ventured too far outside of the core values.

    Pros

    * OUTSTANDING People
    * Flexible work environment
    * Great opportunity for advancement
    * Superior suite of products that the technology world requires for survival

    Cons

    * Annual reorganization
    * Movement from an acquisition model to a divestiture model - while this is not inherently bad, it does change the culture from one of rapid growth and excitement to one that is more complacent.
