    Pros

    Great, smart people who are passionate about their roles as builders. High bar for excellence and analytics. Challenging and constantly changing business opportunities that make each job "new again" on a regular basis. Jeff is a visionary and is one of the few CEOs of Fortune 500 companies that is actively involved in creating value for shareholders.

    Cons

    Zero work/life balance; too much communication by email rather than face to face collaboration; customer focus spotty although a core value; overly dominated by software development engineers who lack general business management, leadership or basic social skills; there's the feeling that anyone/everyone is ultimately expendable with the exception of Jeff which leads to a subtle "temporary" feeling to anyone's tenure at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Great companies are comprised of great teams." Remember that unregretted attrition is a costly inefficiency.
