Pros

- Flex time
- Work-from-home
- Great work-life balance
- Fantastic annual bonuses
- Engineers get exposure to a breadth of product development activity such as Project/Program Management, Product Marketing, Technical Writing, Social Media marketing etc.

Cons

- Lots of red tape and bureaucracy
- Management focused on Windows OS and Windows OS based products
- Not innovative and does not spend nearly enough in R&D
- Very frugal travel budgets for employees. Forget traveling to Global Dev Centers (like SDC, BDC etc), travel for even local conferences is hard to get approval for.

Advice to Management

Well read my list of Cons :)

    Pros

    people. the people have always been the reason it was a great place to work. I could always find hard working people, whether in sales or operations or finance. I also thought there was a decent amount of leader development training and investment.

    Cons

    promotability for top performers - over time the company became a bit top-heavy

  2. Terrific!
