    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere - almost everyone I met is very friendly and open to discussion. Collaboration encouraged - whether walking between buildings, at lunch, or during the companies many social events. Nice location - beautiful views and campus in general. Great amenities - shuttles around the campus, buses that will pick you up around the bay area, relaxation rooms, free beverages, on-site dental, haircuts, exercise facilities, etc.

    Cons

    Opportunities for contract workers is very limited.

    Pros

    Great co workers , great benefits, for the most part employment stability, good work and life balance

    Cons

    Bad things are staying bad year after year because the measure of success is just to have an idea , implement it and then shout it from roof tops to get that next promotion, No one follows up to see if the idea actually worked. Emphasis is on looking like you are doing something good rather than actually doing good. IT environment has remained a couple of decades behind , since emphasis is on doing things cheaper with no regard for the users who have to deal with the poor decision made in that arena by spending time doing workarounds. The phrase digital transformation is used a lot but in practice nothing much materializes and folks are still dependent on spreadsheets and macros. Bottom line current corporate culture is geared towards defending the status quo
