    OK if you like working for big companies

    Pros

    (only as far as I experienced in one particular team. It's a big company, so it might be very different in different org/team) - Sane work-life balance - OK middle management (better than average in my experience) - Helpful and friendly colleagues

    Cons

    - It's a big company, with some of the usual problems it brings: too many meetings; upper management's decisions often seem bizarre from the perspective of an individual contributor; you often feel like a cog in a huge machine. - Very low % of women in engineering. I don't know why it is that way, but it probably has some reasons.
