    Pros

    Smart, collaborative, hard-working people who want to produce the best work possible.

    Cons

    Despite great talent and opportunities, the overall culture is oddly frustrating and at times toxic, partially attributable to an Emperors New Clothes approach to managing up.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop micromanaging/micro-decision-making so your people can do their best work for the company. You may learn a thing or two from them!

    Pros

    Very interesting work. Opportunity to learn and contribute to leading edge technologies. Top pay and benefits. Compensation is merit based. Stock options too.

    Cons

    Super competitive work culture. Long hard days. Intense pressure to produce results. Little appreciation unless you're one of the fast track, super-star performers. Steady performers that meet their deliverables without fanfare will not succeed.
