    Pros

    Great benefits and decent compensation for the workload. The company values are terrific but good work life balance

    Cons

    Lack of direction. Way too many chiefs and not enough Indians. They need to really define proper strategy and stick to that strategy. Really no real career path focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great overall Executive Management Team. Simple wonderful and really a true employee rich company.

    Pros

    An international Company with many opportunities

    Cons

    Bureaucracy & not a leader, more of a follower

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gid rid of middle management and get visionaries who are able to understand the customer and determine where the video market is going. You are always late to the game, and adding features upon features does not sell the product.

    Pros

    good benefits, easy going environment, good people. This is assessment is based on my department. I have heard of other departments that are more stringent and tight. So, it depends on who your direct report may be and your peers.

    Cons

    Although for some departments, it is a comfortable working environment, it doesn't seem like one can grow there. A good place to get experience.

    Pros

    Acceptable management team (there are a few weak ones, but also a lot of very good ones). Flex hours. Recognition for a job well done. Periodic town halls to keep us informed. Exciting products with good growth in the industry. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Some teams understaffed/overworked. Starting to lose small company spirit. May be slipping behind the new product introduction curve. Leadership team "aging". Need to bring in more young leaders to ensure future success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conducting CEO round table and skip level meetings might surface some ideas for improvement from us hard working employees in the trenchs. Make sure rewards and recognition are shared equally across all departments... appears slanted towards sales team. Grow a younger managment staff. Need a balance of Sr leaders and younger managers looking/wanting to grow.
