    Pros

    Great focus on career growth, lots of smart people, great benefits, the type of company where you could spend your entire career there

    Too many reorgs, not enough alignment between different groups, can be really frustrating trying to get things done, not what it used to be

    The company is so big that there's very limited impact that an individual person can contribute to the company
