    Pros

    Lots of opportunity, interesting products

    Cons

    Hours can completely consume you if you don't clearly enforce your work / life balance needs to your manager. They won't do it for you since the pressure on them is immense.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure you're setting realistic expectations with projects. Don't demand stuff months ahead of its need assuming it will slip out for months.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive. Unless you are at the executive level and then it is more than competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they are worth, especially top performers. You want a world class workforce without paying world class salaries.
