It's a amazing company on a path to regain the crown

Program Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA (US)

Pros- Experience with variety of technology, products, business opportunities within same umbrella
- Great place to learn about developing large scale software
- Great salary and benefits - company takes good care of employees

Cons- Some Performance evaluation philosophies are flawed
- Management is rarely measured for good people management. -good technical folks are people managers.

Advice to Senior Management- Agility of software development hindered by tools
- People Managers should be seriously measured for people management
- When products fail or under-perform, it should impact executives who lead it, but have moved on to other jobs.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
