    Most of the time was filled with lots of work with little rewards

    Great People, Poor Vision

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Bellevue, WA

    ProsCompany is full of interesting complex problems
    Peers were very team oriented and were willing to work together.
    Work hours were flexible and company was good about molding work around your life.

    ConsHorribly restrictive change control process makes even simple changes a 3 week debacle.
    Benefits just flat out were horrible and getting worse every year.
    Sense the company is imploding. No top down vision of direction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a vision and execute it.
    Stop using attrition to pare down your work force, losing your best people this way.
    Communicate and take care of your remaining employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Team, Losing Talent Fast

    Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) Bellevue, WA

    ProsGreat team of people to work with, was industry best, the technical team was able to pull off installation of new Data Centers in Asia Pacific Plenty of good talents from Telecommunications arena.

    ConsDue to recent issue with executives, more and more of the talents have either been disappointed or disenfranchised with the low stock performance that there is hardly incentive to keep good talent or attracting new talent. Looks likely to be sold.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to rebuild character, establish good code and context, and find better directions instead of just relying on recently purchased company. Need products that will last in today's mobile world instead of implementation only on older phones.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
