    Pros

    Very smart, talented people work below the directors. You establish some very good professional friendships. Salary is good but bonuses or raises non-existent.

    Cons

    People are not valued. They develop state of the art products but with antiquated equipment & IT support. Manager must do everything; for such a large company there is extremely limited HR, recruiting, administrative help. Company is not nimble enough to compete in the new business climate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the culture.
    Value your people; don't just think you value you them because you say you do, prove it in your actions!
    You expect managers to be admin; give them the support & resources they need to manage and grow the business.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
