    Pros

    The company is sane and stable, the benefits are reasonable and with hard work and ingenuity you can progress. Middle management are mostly reasonable individuals.

    Pros

    Great people, great product, good benefits, flexible vacation. The cream definitely rises to the top. If you're a top performer or a good leader in sales you'll get promoted.

    Cons

    Concerned about growth potential in an organization outside sales. Sales organization gets all the resources, everything else is secondary. Don't expect a big raise if you get a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Know when a team is too flat. Invest in marketing, brand recognition for the second largest software company is pretty poor.
