Pros

It is exciting to work for a company that is so successful at what it does. Everyone is extremely smart and there is opportunity for personal and career growth. Also, you can't beat a location like San Diego. It's one of the best places in the world to live and work in.

Cons

Same as the downsides for working for any large company. It is sometimes hard to get a good idea of what your work will go to help out the strategic goals of the organization. In a smaller company a single person's work is directly impacting to the success of the company.

Advice to Management

They could implement more efficient and frequent communication with the employees and have a way of transmitting ideas up to them.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great place to learn. Great place to work with best and brightest technical people. Very stable and successful company. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Most of the management consists of former engineers who are not necessarily good managers. Weak performance review and coaching system. Weak project management. Extremely big place. Lot of fat in the organization. Most senior places are taken by long-timers and hence small opportunities for long term career growth. Sometimes negelct work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    Do better project planning and management. Only choose competant people as managers, directors and VPs (i.e. do not promote people into these positions just because they are good engineers.)
