    Company has grown very large, not as nimble like some of thier smaller competitors
    Very slow stock price growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The "council" format of management was not working very well, as it added a lot of confusion trickling down to the rank and file

    Pros

    Big company means a lot of resources. Everyone was very friendly and helped me to learn their massive coding libraries.

    Cons

    Because the teams and company are so large it is hard to get to know who you work with. However, this would be less of an issue if I worked full-time and not just a summer internship
