      Good, but not as good as it was.

      Pros

      Working environment (mainly offices, few cubes) Corporate culture among long-serving individual contributor employees counters sometimes seeming indifference of senior management. Wilsonville isn't in California. :-) Vacation accrual went through some bumps, but is now back to where it was (2 days a month).

      Cons

      Move to Wilsonville and you may never be able to leave. If you are not working for a big revenue product, get ready to live in the shadows. Banked vacation maximum reserve is down to 10 days from 24. No more long breaks - take it or lose it. Option grants have atrophied and MENT is not managed as a growth stock aimed at increasing shareholder value. Do not count on a bonus. Employee Stock Purchase Plan has been cut to a 6-month look-back (industry norm) rather than 2 years. Layoffs are invariably stealthy and seemingly without warning.
