      Pros

      For software engineers they treat you well here. You get snacks and plenty of happy hours happen. There isn't generally a large turn-over rate as people like it here.

      Cons

      Tough competition to get promoted depending on what level you start at.

      Pros

      They have great benefits, and the work-life balance is great. I wouldn't choose another company to get my software engineering life started. Great cafeteria and the new buildings are gorgeous.

      Cons

      The roles differ greatly by which organization you're in (because some have way more money than others), and some of the products you work tirelessly on don't go anywhere, which can be frustrating.

      Pros

      Decent work-life balance. Compensation and benefits are pretty good.

      Cons

      Lack of talent overall especially in experienced hire and manager levels. Tout themselves as a tech company but doubtfully ever will be.
