    Pros

    Great company, great work environment. Best people I have ever worked with. Great compensation. Easy access to upper management. The one of the very positive part of management is always consider alternative to layoffs.

    Cons

    It's very hard to say... alternative to layoffs sometime you feel like painful.. but its good for everybody. I would request unhappy person "go and ask the person who lost his job during this crisis". (With current financial crisis over the globe you really cannot blame anybody).

    Pros

    Great work environment, Easily approachable top management, Company culture and value system, Very liberal stock compensation etc., among the top positives

    Cons

    Given that company has exposure to Telecom industry, which is cyclical in nature, do not expect salary raises during the down cycles. Liberal RSU's fairly compensate for any loss in the increment
