    Pros

    Terrific people at the engineering level. People are helpful, enjoy what they do. Benefits are roughly competitive. Possible to achieve good work/life balance. Nice facility.

    Cons

    Too much emphasis by remote managers on "not being surprised" by anything, so they can look knowledgeable in their meetings. As a result, more time is spent relaying information in weekly/monthly status reporting then actually solving the problems. Remote managers on the east coast can be clueless to what goes on at other locations outside their immediate area. Clear "buddy-buddy" system on east coast, so look out when layoffs come. Future of Homes business uncertain with Google takeover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote a culture where everyone can share information across all levels, rather than being conduits. Directors should share the limelight with the people that actually do the work.

    Pros

    You sometimes get the opportunity to work on wonderful exciting projects. Company takes good care of everyone with pay and benefits. Lots of good people there.

    Cons

    Often takes too long to make decisions on next products, etc. There are periods of frustration with nothing new and exciting on the horizon. The work is increasingly virtual (via telephone or computer) you may go for some time without working face to face with team members).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People working on same project being in same physical location is more effective.
