Pros

Good salary, amazing benefits and really smart, empowered people.

Cons

Long hours and extremely high expectations.
Over the years it has become increasingly corporate and less like the adventurous, fun place to work. Too many internal politics make the stress not worth the shrinking benefits and lagging salary.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to cover your butts so much that you turn it into an internal warzone and report generating hell.
What happened to innovation and getting cool things done?
