    Pros

    Good facilities-Facilities are really good like cab, food, internet, books and all, Working environment is good. Awesome culture.

    Cons

    Dying technology: XenApp and Xendesktop both are dying slowly. XenServer is already dead. There are more competition from MS and VMware.
    Layoffs: This is really bad and sends very negative signals. Especially when you start hiring few weeks after layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Hard to move up in the company
