    Pros

    It is a tech company large enough to be able to withstand economic downturns or predatory acquisitions. It also provides opportunity to explore different technologies.

    It is too distributed in terms of employee locations. Some teams have employees all over the country or world that sometimes make it difficult to coordinate.

    Advice to Management

    It is important to build strong teams that can effectively operate locally, and it is a coherent part of a larger organization.
