      Pros

      Well oiled machine. Great benefits and numerous ways to get into different career paths.

      Cons

      My particular department has many layers of management. Micro managing is over the top. Also, bad apples stick around longer than desired.

      Pros

      Large company with large company culture and high operating standards with many different types of job opportunities, albeit main site is Thousand Oaks, CA headquarters (but with operations world-wide). Great benefits and sensitive culture.

      Cons

      While attempting to be agile and innovative, at times can still operate like a large company with undue bureaucracy.

      Pros

      Excellent alignment of work and mission. Talented people to work with. Great benefits and culture of acceptance. Decision-making by putting the patient first.

      Cons

      Perhaps a more risk averse business that does not embrace new trends too quickly, sometime might be a bit late to the game on many fronts. Lagging behind compensation commensurate with market standard/ attracting top talent.
