    OK-ish but it is time to change and adapt

    Solutions Architect (Current Employee)
    Bracknell, England (UK)

    ProsVery good hardware ranges
    Occasional technical training
    Good pension
    Amazing people

    Cons-Lower than market rate salary
    -Unfair 1-2-1 performance reviews
    -Non-stop re-organisations
    -Management do wrong financial forecast at the beginning of the year then later realising it was unreal start cutting corners saying we are in lost. As a result all the budget gets slashed.
    -Whole performance review is based on peer feedbacks and managers are desperate to downgrade your performance because they have been told that exceptional performance is unrealistic thing to obtain. If you have say 10 team objectives and a particular piece of work can only satisfy 7 of them you will be forced to take it, but then at the end of the year you will be blamed on performance review for not meeting the remaining 3 items. This is unfair because it is not employee's fault that he/she was not given a proper work. By other word if you are CSA3 and doing CSA2 piece of work due to absence of CSA3 related work then even if you do it exceptionally you will not be able to obtain exceptional performance. Moreover the whole performance review process is uncontrolled and manager chose not to honour any high mark to employees because they do not want to be grilled by backing them up later in front of their managers. Although there are procedure to follow nobody follow them.
    -There are no or a very few company provided labs for architects to build their solutions which leads to multiple rework/project failures
    -Instead of saying "follow/stick to the procedures" managers says "cover your back".
    -You are just a body/number for your management

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your brilliant people.

    Account Executive (Current Employee)
    Tokyo (Japan)

    Prosmany opportunities to grow . boss really give chances to freely control your job.
    no competition, seniors hep junior kindly

    Consso many hierarchy levels that makes decision process very slow. top people dont actually grasp the whole pictures , so they cant help to decide the strategy!!
    too big so there are many no-added-value tasks to proceed inside!

    Business was not stable enough to keep staff

    Customer Service Engineer (Former Employee)
    Portland, ME

    ProsVaried experiences, something new every day. With the wide range of customers you could find yourself working on a large base of technology both new and old.

    ConsLow Compensation, Quick to change staffing levels as customer base was not solid. There wasn't much communication on what the company was doing except communication with your direct supervisor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork on maintaining staff levels to avoid layoffs/turnover

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Upper Management Does not Care for the well being of Dallas employees

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsThe pay is good and the building was recently updated. The parking is good and the location is good for someone looking in the North Dallas area.

    ConsUpper management does not care if someone decides to leave the company. The turnover is very high and work life balance is very poor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake a decision on what the plans are for the Dallas Waterview location.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Platinum Level Consultant

    Platinum Level Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsIndependence and ability to work your own career. Very little management oversight. Able to write your own ticket. If you like to work directly with clients and deal one on on, then they will encourage it.

    ConsYour simply a body. There is no mentoring, no career path, no benefit to the long term career minded consultant. The pure consulting arm isn't really sure where they want to grow and rarely can compete with other companies that keep a strong bench.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave your consultants help drive achievement and direction. They are your ONLY asset. The bench is your responsibility to help

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Nice people but not too much community

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Munich (Germany)

    ProsThe projects I worked on were all very interesting, and I enjoyed working with the people in my team. Good mentorship from more senior employees, and generally, people are very friendly. Company also has very flexible hours and a nice work/life balance.

    ConsWhere I was working, it tended to be a lot of older employees, so it's not a great place to work as a young person. Additionally, there's not too much culture within the company. Employees don't know very much about each other's personal lives and don't interact outside of company grounds.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
