I have been working at Acme Packet full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I've enjoyed working here, have worked with some excellent people on very interesting projects. Enjoyable workplace community.

Cons

Seems that "face time" is the strongest guiding factor for career advancement; which is good if you're young and single. Project priorities get juggled frequently.

    Pros

    Company willing to take on any new avenue as long as revenue is tied to it. Company has been able to gain market leadership with the approach they have taken so far for SBC market.

    Cons

    Company is not entirely open to new approaches, new designs and so on. Company doesnt encourage personal learning, doesnt enable personal growth. They have a set way of doing things and are not willing to explore major avenues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the way things are done and change things around a bit. Bring in fresh perspective for things we are actively pursuing.
