    Pros

    Work Life Balance is good and the benefits are competitive.
    Nice people to work with

    Cons

    Culture is not the same, seems more like "no child left behind", where everything slows down to meet the intellectual abilities of the least capable, some of whom are in leadership. Not a company for hard chargers or highly competent, the masses will bring you down with misuse of the culture. Assume that most positives are from out of schoolers, who won't know any better. J&J, Siemens, Medtronic all much stronger companies and support the vaunted "freedom principle" better than Gore does. Do not expect to be rewarded for hard work, instead bring in muffins and a smile, you will be in leadership in no time.

    Advice to Management

    Culture is out of date and practiced poorly, Gore used to be a hardcore engineering environment, now it is soft, too soft for rapid development. You need talent, not a bunch of kids out of school. Hope you will be around to celebrate 60 years, but feel there is a crash coming.
