    Pros

    Great benefits, most people are pretty easy to get along with. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Very focused on commodity hardware so it's not ideal for a software person. There's not enough innovation as most of the technology comes from suppliers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on software and innovation. Eliminate excess 'middle management' and let the engineers have more freedom to push ahead.
