    Pros

    Small company with access to some cool technology and under right circumstance can grow job. Most people are nice and fun.

    Cons

    Negative vibe as important smart people left in 2014, failed at the cloud strategy, HUGE LAYOFFS of engineers, company is in shrinking market, uncompetitive products, weak executive management, management strategy is all over the place and shortsighted, management makes excuses for problems, major benefits reductions, office location and condition is not competitive, forced to sell on price to survive. In about 1 year 4 HR managers/directors in a row quit- that says it all

    Advice to Management

    Get new management (ones that understand how products work), get product strategy, find the few real hard workers that provide value and reward them, learn how the products work

    Pros

    There were a lot of great people that worked at Buffalo which made going into work something to look forward to on a daily basis. The projects were interesting and that kept things interesting.

    Cons

    The offshore management kept changing track. Priorities would change on an almost daily basis. The organization structure would change every few months.

    Advice to Management

    Please pick a direction and stick with it. Worry less about politics and more about what's good for the company.

  5. Mixed bag. Good leadership handicapped by international cultural challenges.

    Pros

    Good products. Strong customer service.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Terrible internal culture (or lack thereof). Morale extremely poor and no meaningful plan to effect a difference in any of these issues... Compensation heavily weighted to senior leadership.

    Pros

    I would like to say something positive about Buffalo, but I was miserable here. I would have moved jobs, but for the economy. When something finally opened up, I grabbed it, even though it meant a longer commute and a pay check.

    Cons

    Nobody cares about the customer. It’s all about money and margins. And nobody cares about the products quality. The only question is how many can we sell.

    Advice to Management

    Something major needs to be done. (I don't know what, but something).

    Pros

    Many excellent people who strive to improve and make it a fun place.

    Cons

    Your role can change drastically in as little as 3-6 months. Should people in your team or area leave or be let go likely their job will become your job for no additional compensation or respect. It can lead to eventually changing what your goals are.

    Pros

    The people Independence Changing for the better

    Cons

    Small company you wear many hats. Not always informed. Schedules could be more flexible, telecommute. Cubicle life is sometimes distracting. Needs to get out in the community more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the changes coming, you're on the right track. Hopefully this will turn into a millennial company with changes that are being made.

    Pros

    Upper Management cares about the employees, and always has an open door to discuss concerns/ideas for improvement, etc Upper Management is constantly striving to improve in all areas (IE, they don't do things the same way forever, just because that's the way it always been done.) You get to work with upcoming technology - keeps the job interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    Sometimes you get so many things on your plate, you have to bring your work home - not really a Con, but the Con field is a required field.
