    Pros

    Awesome and great people, very smart coworkers, hard challenges, excellent culture, moving forward, good leadership, free food

    Cons

    Get things done; depends of a lot of teams, each team has their own priorities, seems like people don't stay here for long time. Is hard to find somebody for more than 10 years

    Advice to Management

    QPR process is not right, good hard workers getting bad result; just because they need to have somebody in the percentage range.
