    I worked at Align Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    decent pay & perks good w/l balance good product, market leader, almost no competitors great place to relax and retire (if you don't give a damn and can smile&swallow) :-)

    Cons

    huge tech debt. poor management & communication (starting from VP level). Ad-hoc decisions & projects & timelines & priority changes, bad planning, lack of clear vision & strategy & roadmap. Quick, poorly designed and unverified solutions that "seem to work perfectly fine, we'll see how to improve it later (no)" are painful to support/change/replace later on. No cross-team communication. Processes, policies, guidelines, playbooks and documentation generally either do not exist or in a poor & outdated state (mostly for compliance). Toxic environment: technical proficiency & experience is not valued, managers like to dictate and create vision of work "here and now" instead of trying to do something right. Being a nice guy loyal to the management simply doing what you are told to do without questioning and reasoning is the (only) key to success (including career opportunities). Performance review process is funny (at best) and obfuscated - someone's unverified and unsound verbal 'feedback' can simply ruin your hard work and you won't be able to find any roots - neither HR nor senior management will help you. This is all relevant to IT, but things are much better in DEV/SWE.

    Advice to Management

    People is the key for success. Be extremely picky for the folks you hire and promote (especially mid/senior management), listen to and value your real tech experts (those few which are still there), not the copycats who throw the 'BS bingo' dust into your eyes. Start asking for the business value in the presented roadmaps and strategies instead of simply getting hooked by fancy acronyms. Get rid of dictators and tech debt, encourage agile team work and adopt 'technology is taking care of technology' mindset instead of statically relying on particular people for statically defined R&Rs.
