    Pros

    * Great perks with free park passes and discounts on merch and hotels * Get to work with some of the world's best IP * Provided nice office equipment

    Cons

    Biggest con was a very slow and old-school engineering culture. The terms "Retired in Place" and "Not Invented Here" syndrome apply. People are afraid to modernize tooling or processes because everything is so easy to break. High level engineers are happy to waste days on scut work (the kind of stuff that is normally automated elsewhere). The mouse has pretty deep pockets so no skin off their back but not a good atmosphere to build a career in (unless you want to be a career clock puncher watching technology pass you by). Engineers didn't seem to be interested in fixing bugs or doing root cause analysis, just playing hot potato with them to keep work off their plate (and so things get dropped and don't get fixed). It was embarrassing working on software that was so unforgivably buggy and see how little the other engineers there cared about the impact on the end-user.
