    I worked at 21CT full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Kitchen is stocked with soft drink and snacks.

    Cons

    Very disfunctional teams, management turns a blind eye, executives in constant disagreement. More than one Engineer in the past 6 months became so frustrated they just packed up and quit one day, without notice and without another job.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at 21CT full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting projects and what used to be a wide variety of research topics
    Some intellectual freedom to pursue bleeding-edge research and spin-off topics

    Cons

    Favoritism, nepotism, ageism, elitism
    Time is managed by billable hours; almost impossible to take vacation or sick days
    Desire to focus on IT-like products to homogenize workforce and minimize salaries
    Company is top-heavy: too many director chiefs, few tribal councillors and too few Indians

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate excess, prima donna directors
    Advertise your company culture as it truly is: don't hire highly-talented employees and expect them to be happy as cogs or round pegs in round holes.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
