Pros

There are a large number of engineers, software designers, and project managers who have been here for 10 to 20 years. The upside is stability, once you're in and proven yourself.

Cons

The downside is how slow the organization adapts to new markets, new ideas, new people.

The age old battle between the sales & marketing group vs. the operations group is very pronounced. It's exasperated by the fact it's a matrix organization. Projects are rarely completed on time.

Advice to Management

Do proper estimates. Stop selling more than you can deliver.

    Pros

    Nice people and building but in an inconvenient area with gridlock traffic coming in and going out on Willows Road. Cars are bumper-to-bumper and you have to drive to go anywhere for lunch other than the on-site restaurant.

    Cons

    Still on Lotus Notes and entire IT part of company is really messed up and behind over 30 years. You have little to no guidance on getting to key areas as an employee with about 25 different log in links and passwords that aren't yours of choosing. It's an antiquated system and needs re-vamping. They keep saying they will change it but they never do. It's nearly impossible to work there and try to get things done. It's a really quiet place and you can hear a pin drop. It doesn't foster growth or imagination. You are locked out of most of the internet with their dated web browser security system. Don't even think of looking at Facebook or anything like that because you will be blocked.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the program and update your software and system for employees.
