    Pros

    Nice Co-workers
    In today's economy - salary is fair market
    free lunch on wed
    flexibly vacation/time off

    Cons

    Support Management takes the approach that you need to sacrifice your life for the company
    Support Management does not consider the employees need for advancement and growth
    Support Management only sees you as an asset for business needs
    Support management squeezes the most out of you
    Support Management takes an elite approach / favoritism towards promotions
    If you are in a particular division of support - you may have a less stressful job - others are constantly stressed
    Recognition is not about technical merit but on your ability to kiss-ass to management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more headcount to reduce the unneeded stress
    Listen to the needs to the employee - growth - even horizontal moves are ignored
    Do not be in denial - almost everyone is looking to escape, however, the economy is not good - don't abuse the situation and promote growth and in return receive loyalty and excellent work attitudes

    Pros

    The Company has catered lunch on Wednesdays. The workers are friendly.

    Cons

    Director's like to yell, unpleasant and unprofessional.
    Workers are warned not to approach other Department Manager's because they might have a temper tantram.
    Some staff members lack very basic computer skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat both consultants and employee's with respect. It is unproductive to have "Director" or "Managers" that are preceived to have so much power and control that everyone else needs to walk on egg shells in order to get their work done. This is a small company with to many back stabbing and unhealthy management. They should clean house starting with the Director's. They should offer free training to their all staff on how to use MS Office Suite.

    Pros

    To better appreciate your former employer after joining ArcSight.
    You will become a cynical demoralized candidate after the first interview.

    Cons

    Have to work 1 year before you can quit otherwise employers perceive a 'job hopper'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop offering bread crumbs.
