    Pros

    The work environment is great. The people are great. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved in the community and chances to get to know coworkers. Great family friendly environment.

    Cons

    It is hard to move up or around the Company at this time. I think they are working on creating work rotations from within but right now the turnover is higher than it needs to be do to the Company not giving opportunities for growth and advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create better career paths. Need more internal job postings to allow smart and hard working individuals the opportunity for growth and advancement. You will have a more knowledgeable and committed workforce.

    Shrinking telecommunications market which keeps GENBAND in a consolidation vs, growth mode, competitors are plentiful in many of software and hardware products that GENBAND offers.

    Continue to find ways to outpace the competition
