    Pros

    Everything I look for in a company: financially stable; interesting technical products; appropriate compensation; smart coworkers who are fun to work with; and as a bonus it's a quick commute.

    Cons

    Current splits into divisions means people are often competing with each other for the same resources, but in an unhealthy way -- it does not foster the spirit cooperation and can lead to distrust. I expect further divisional realignment will fix things up. Also, the hiring process is painful -- it takes weeks to get an offer out to someone because of the approval process.

    Advice to Management

    Be more communicative to the employees, and give them more decision making responsibility -- there are too many checks and balances and too many people who need to weigh in on some decisions, meaning we do not move as nimbly as we should when it comes to making investments and business or product decisions.

    Pros

    The benefits package is up there with Google. Medical, dental, 401k, stock options, partner discounts, popcorn and foosball, ping pong, free soda, free coffee tea hot chocolate. I can even work from home whenever I want.

    Cons

    The parking lot is too small. They do not keep up with the elevator inspections. Not much of a downside, really. Travel restrictions are necessary, but interfering with my job.

    Advice to Management

    It's a bummer that you have to be in sales or have been with the company 12 years to get any recognition.
