    Pros

    Good salaries and comp plans; great facilities at HQ in Sunnyvale; some of the leadership team was very inspiring; good community give back program

    Cons

    Too big to get things done quickly enough; no direction from leadership; no leadership growth opportunities unless at HQ; company does not treat people fairly; lots of people ready to throw you under the bus at any opportunity; it was all about status reports and updating the latest version for your boss' boss; compensation adjustments were vastly different by VP

    Pros

    Great people, challenging work. Supportive work and team environments. Mature processes while still having the opportunity to influence change and driver efficiencies.

    Cons

    Work life balance is challenging depending on team. Finance in particular appears to have different work standards than other functions. Offcycle promotions are rare.

    Advice to Management

    It's difficult to retain top talent when you don't incentivize them to stay. Invest in your people and compensate them accordingly.
