    Pros

    Great People, reasonable opportunity to move around internally, good benefits, competitive salary. Generally great technology, Overall team culture is very good.

    Cons

    Major politics, and cliques of new hires. Competitor take over by hiring from the other guys - some good sides of this, but re-enforces the politics and culture clash. Need to get divisions to collaborate - some successes, but still lots of empires. Some arrogance as a market leader, leading to complacency. Takes too long to deliver updates to product - competitors are catching up and in some areas overtaking. Customers getting frustrated in certain product areas.
