Pros

Some very talented and intelligent engineers that were great to work with

Cons

Management completely screwed up with constant thrashing of projects and no clear direction that they are taking the company, if they continue this way they will not survive.
Hire and fire mindset, fire employees to make the financials look good then months later hiring again. Very shady, I know of a woman that was on maternity leave and was laid off.

Advice to Management

Come up with a concrete plan/direction and stick to it.

    Pros

    Used to be a nice place to work (until 2008) with good spirit and interesting work.

    Cons

    Too many layoffs. Too many promises not kept by management. Unrealistic business goals. Too much bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    In April 2012 we were supposed to have the best year ever and in June 2012 it changed to be the worst year ever. Need a clear objective and have a plan we can actually deliver.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. However, working for a company that always loses money sucks.

    Cons

    Upper management has all bailed within a 3 month span - CMO, CFO, CIO all gone. This is a true sign of a bad company
