Pros: stimulating and challenging work, somewhat creative, flexible work hours
Cons: work/life balance, working on vacation, budgetary constraints, sales-heavy
This company has changed quite a lot in the 10 years I've been there. Over the last couple of years, the work/life balance has shifted more towards the expectation that you will work even when on vacation, and that is no longer ok with me. The work is challenging, stimulating, and all consuming. The people are mostly smart and great to work with. Working blind without knowing key parameters like overall budgetary constraints and then having to cancel or push out product lines is very tedious and soul-killing. Also the job is becoming too sales-heavy when you consider everything else the Product Manager is responsible for.
