    Once a good place to work, but don't even try now

    Program Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsDirect management was very supportive in career development, work/life balance, and colaboration. There was plenty of room to move your career around in the company once you made the right contacts. The ability to work virtually was an excellent benifit.

    ConsYou spent half your time fighting internal battles to try to get any work done. It was difficult sometimes to get to the right person to get the job done. Interal processes made it difficult to do business in a timely manner. Senior level management was disconnected with the field and placed importance on processes that weren't revenue generating and held no value.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back in touch with your teams in the field so you can find out what they truly need to get business done. Stop implementing tools and processes then not follow through only to try again a few years later. It's a waste of time and training.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Management needs to wake up and talk to the CUSTOMER! Stop all the placating to cronies!

    SE Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat technology company, R&D are always thinking. They encourage remote telecommuting, maybe too much sometimes. Very “Green” Environment friendly. They encourage and promote volunteerism in the community.

    ConsMediocrity is king. I do not know if it’s the constant bloodletting, but no one has any fire in the belly. They are lead by technology, and never ask the customer what they want or need. They create a piece of hardware and say, let the industry figure out how they want to use it? None of the business units talk or COOPERATE with each other. "Reliable" Internal data is impossible to come by, everyone can have their own web page and put any MISinformation they want out there, and product managers put NO information out there! Management is so focused on OPEX, they cut their nose off to spite their face.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up, talk to the CUSTOMER! Stop all the placating to cronies!
