    Pros

    Relies heavily on the individual's drive and skill set, but there is an amazing team of people behind you always willing to help. Real college-like atmosphere. Outside Sunnyvale the team is mostly home-office based or in tiny 1-2 person offices so it's very flexible. Company invests heavily in its people and is not afraid of hiring. A strong 'virtual' approach to doing business with a lot automation of internal processes.

    Cons

    Need to be self-driven. Days could go by where you have no contact with your colleagues. At the same time, your workload can be very high and may exceed what you are used to especially in Europe, so you need to be ready to push-back (however the company will give you all the resources you need if they're justified). Expect a lot of travel which may sound exciting at first but will take its toll on your personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that you are a GLOBAL company. Your upper management is way too US-focused and completely oblivious to the different priorities in other regions.
