    Pros

    Great people. Great product. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Too much management, middle and upper mostly.
    A good number of decisions are made in haste instead of being thoughtful and decisive.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the individual contributors, they know the product and how to produce it. They are the front line and are sometimes ignored when insight into problems are needed for resolution.
