    Full of Political Bureaucracy

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Proslot of potential in the organization to lead the industry,

    ConsWorst Management structure. Many people been there for more than 25+ years and will not let you make any changes in organization. part of the reason why the organization internal structure and process is out dated and chaotic. Management can't face the ugly truth.....

    Advice to Senior Managementplease bring in some fresh blood and fresh idea to the top - to - Mid level management. and focus on employee career growth.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    New CEO, same old stuff

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you look really, really carefully there are good people within the organization. Good pay, good benefits.

    ConsIt's a dinosaur of a company that doesn't know who it is. The people inside are more concerned with backbiting each other than looking outside at what is happening around them. Rightfully so, there is no trust within the organization. And each time they switch directions -- which happens about once a quarter -- they loose the good, right people and the old, crappy management remains.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGood luck

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Constant Layoffs and Firings

    Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Alpharetta, GA

    ProsPay is good and fellow employees are nice.

    ConsEvery day you have to worry about being fired at this company. In my four years I've seen more people fired than people who quit on their own. The company is struggling and the senior management is filling their pockets. When things don't go well the worker bees pay the price with the annual "restructuring." The pay is good, but the risk are too high. The stress isn't worth the return.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean house from the top down to the director level. Cut the tenured and start to appreciate the forgotten who do all the work for you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Senior Management is out of touch

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsThe product is good.
    Middle managers are helpful.

    ConsSenior managers are ridiculous. They are running the company and feeding their own ego and pocketbooks. They do not listen to anyone and make decisions on their own. Don't care about employee moral. Senior managers are all new and their are hiring their friends who don't know the business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps talk to employees and actually listen to their opinions. When you fire someone - you need a reason. You should live near your job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Engineer

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEasier to be visible and make the difference

    ConsPretty much everything else: mediocre pay, benefits. Petty office politics. Nepotism with mid managers. Zero chance of any advancement or career growth. Company is in financial trouble and completely lost in the new age technology.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop wasteful spending.
