    Pros

    Good benefits, though a step down compared to before. Large, reputable company. Advance technology and algorithms

    Cons

    Workflow can be chaotic. People at the top have the know-how, but mid-level management sometimes don't possess the technical skills. Work/life balance is largely dependent on the group one works in.

    Cons

    Too much control from San Diego. Remote sites don't have a lot of say. Requires a lot of travel to San Diego if you want to stay relevant.
