    Pros

    Market leadership, smart engineers, customer focus.

    Cons

    Has lost its way on the management side. Bureaucratic and extremely political at senior levels. Inability to choose decisive leadership and move quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in leaders, quit bringing in outside leaders that corrupt the culture that made the company successful.

    Pros

    There are plenty of good people and a decent salary range. There are good benefits and an innovative culture that allows flexible working to a degree though there are nice office locations too that have plenty of drop-in workspaces. you can get a lot of autonomy which leads to good prospects to move internally or take on new projects.

    Cons

    higher management is slightly over-heavy though this is getting better, a tendency for people to stay a long time so upward movement can sometimes be difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    move around more, create the space for people to grow
