Pros

- There are lots of smart people to work with.
- The separate roles of PM, DEV, and TEST are cool.
- The technology is very cool.

Cons

Sometimes things move a bit slow since it is a large company. Not all of the management is great at giving feedback.

Advice to Management

It would be nice to get a little more structured feedback from managers. Sometimes feedback can be vague, so maybe more training for managers on how to give constructive feedback would be nice.
