    Pros

    Outstanding company that regularly works to attract the best of the best. The engineers develop exceptional products that you are proud to market.

    Cons

    Sometimes hiring can be too homogeneous that doesn't recognize that you need a diversity of MBTI personality types to have a fully complimented team.

    Advice to Management

    Consider mapping company mission across multiple jobs and the MBTI personality that best accomplishes each part of that mission.
