    Pros

    Some nice people but they are all leaving and moving on!!

    Cons

    mistreatment if not favored, detached management, fear based management styles, no growth, and hostile work place
    HR is useless and only care about events and favoritism. Management turns blind eye to people that do not work there but expect favors and are not that bright. Some people have been there too long and need to move on! No career growth at all...well, unless you are in deeep favor with someone there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step up your game and stop hiding under your favoritism umbrella!

    Pros

    Highly innovative company with great strategic vision and extremely talented people. Excellent product and technology.

    Cons

    Very immature sales organization that doesn't know how to recruit or retain top sales talent. Culturally insensitive and arrogant corporate culture that forces french talking points that do not translate internationally. Marketing and branding organization is a joke. Executive committee is petty, immature, arrogant and disconnected with the tactical realities of running a business this size.
