    I have been working at Xyratex full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Some managers provide great support.

    Cons

    Management has trouble getting out of its own way.

    Look beyond your ego. Plan to be a legacy company not a flash in a pan. Should have spent more time and money raising the bar internally than on lowering it on the logo.
