    Pros

    Awesome benefits, relaxed environment, fun co workers, and a lot of resume boosting opportunities.

    Cons

    Upper management plays favorites, hard to move up into actual management unless you have extensive previous experience, they like to play the card "it's not what you know, but who you know" card. Only issues are with management, but it doesn't affect day to day too bad.

    Pros

    Benefits are great and it offers a flexible role working with the forefront of consumer technology. In an always changing environment it keeps things fresh and engaging.

    Cons

    As a new program, it has not offered to many opportunities for advancement...yet. With the scheduled growth cycle and portfolio soon to come, this will change.

    Pros

    Compensation is reasonable. Benefits are good--although not as good as they used to be. Work-life balance is reasonable depending on your role.

    Cons

    Your ability to be successful in a sales role is strongly dependent on the random quota-setting process and how many of your accounts have renewals scheduled for their Enterprise Agreements in the fiscal year.
