    Pros

    An amazing group of talented and knowledgeable professionals that really embrace collaboration on a global scale. People really do respect their coworkers here. Individuals and teams definitely get recognized for their contributions to the company. Also, over the past few years, the Global Day of Service, which the company coordinates with all employees across the globe, enables and encourages employees to give back to the communities and organizations in their areas. It's a truly awesome endeavor!

    Cons

    While the company is transitioning more a cloud service provider from a product organization, there is visible change that has occurred over the past year and a half. I can understand people feeling uncertain about the business environment, so it takes a certain mindset to focus on the company's goals and take the changes as they come in stride.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop the leadership skills of managers, and in effect, be open to employee feedback.

    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 Management

    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.
