Pros

Flexible work schedule, work from home, great company mission, smart people, generous salary and benefits.

Cons

Too many layers of middle management. It's getting more corporate and rigid; the company's marketing of itself is getting flashier and less genuine; its product is becoming less interesting and the company mission is fading. It takes forever to get anything done. Lack of clarity in chain of command and in who makes decisions. There are a lot of people who don't appear to do anything other than sit in meetings and write emails and produce horrific boring powerpoints. Very little career opportunity for advancement.

Advice to Management

Empower your employees, trust the people on the ground, and get rid of a few layers of middle management. Ban or strictly regulate the use of powerpoint
