    Pros

    Some great mentors who are willing to give time to those who want it. With the right management you get to do some awesome science.

    Cons

    Sense of primacy and arrogance of some at corporate centre who do not listen to their OS colleagues. Since Ricks took over with his pandering to the slash-research-maximise-current-product mob the culture has gone to the dogs.

    Advice to Management

    Reign Ricks in.
