    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities. It is a HUGE company with it's fingers in everything. Lots of opportunities to travel around the world and work with some very smart people.

    Cons

    There isn't really a clear direction for the company. It struggles with internal growth and relies upon acquisitions instead of internal innovation.

    Advice to Management

    You can't offshore all your current development and simply rely upon acquisitions to bring in new technology and talent. Doing so will cause you to lose all your top talent.
