    Pros

    Good products to work on, relaxed company culture.

    Cons

    Instead of developing new technologies internally, the company's strategy is to acquire other companies. When a new company is acquired, management has an instant headcount problem. They solve this "problem" by laying off other employees.

    It's a double win for the CEOs - they're making themselves look cutting-edge by acquiring hot new companies, and simultaneously satisfying Wall Street by making it look like they're cutting expenses by reducing headcount.

    Not so good for the regular employees, though; they're left wondering if they're going to be part of the next group of employees getting the axe.

    Looking for a nice secure place to work? Look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Show some respect for your employees. Try fostering a culture where new technologies and processes are developed internally, instead of just leeching them from acquired companies. Your employees would probably be more productive if they weren't constantly looking over their shoulder for the next layoff.
