Pros

some really smart colleagues, very good compensation and excellent health care package, relax atmosphere, work / life balance

Cons

senior management and executives continue to make mistakes after mistakes...they never seem to learn. it's hard to work for a company that you know is not going to go anywhere...

Advice to Management

listen and be open minded...learn from other successful companies (and not Microsoft). Stop employing people from Microsoft. They're good at one thing: politics.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay, lots of smart people, big audience, good deployment architecture.

    Cons

    Poor internal tools, lack of decisiveness, management changes to frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Each project should have a single general manager in charge of all functions (design, engineering, product, QA, etc). Set goals that are relevant to the business and hold the GM accountable. Then let them succeed or fail. No second guessing.
