Becoming less fun to work here as corporation and resulting bureaucracy grows

Pros

You get to work on interesting products and technologies. If you don't like what you are doing, it is relatively easy to transfer to another group. Company has a good reputation in the marketplace. Very good benefits and amenities, including employee software purchasing, private offices, on-site post office and gym, some free food and drinks.

Cons

Benefits have been significantly cut in the last couple of years. Promotions are difficult to get. Cost-cutting measures have resulted in ridiculous bureaucracy in purchasing equipment. Layoffs are frequent. New hires are usually in China and India instead of USA. With some products there is a lack of leadership from senior management, which results in low-quality products. It is very difficult to fire incompetent people, especially managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Add a system for people to review their managers so senior management can be notified about poor managers. Instead of laying off people in the US to boost the stock price, should be investing in acquiring great talent to really mature some of our products.

    Pros

    Great place to work, where goals are clearly outlined and communicated in clearly defined manner. Fun atmosphere where creativity is encouraged.

    Cons

    Some of the internal systems are dated making them extremely difficult to use. There are inconsistencies with what all groups use, making comparisons challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in one robust system for all internal needs that will allow multiple groups to communicate effectively and without second guessing data.
