A once great company - No longer innovative or employee-friendly, but still a leader.

Program Manager (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsGreat products, smart colleagues, generous benefits (health, 401K matching, sabbatical, time off at managers' discretion - this is good if you have an understanding manager), flexible telecommuting program, a friendly, collaborative team atmosphere, pretty buildings with nice offices with doors you can shut, good corporate citizen.

ConsLimited opportunity for advancement or professional growth. Middle management weak and scared. Too many turf wars. Powerful been-there-forever cliques. Reporting structure lame, it allows family members and romantic relationships to report to one another .Sending too many jobs to India and China, Difficult communication as teams are split up among US, India, China which weakens collaborative efforts, Annual layoffs each year ruin morale.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on innovation. Quit trying to please Wall Street at the expense of your human resources. Try to keep some jobs in the US. Focus on improving the quality of what used to be amazing products - they've become too bloated and buggy. Bring back Chuck, John and Bruce to revitalize company mission.

    Pros: Pretty good salaries and excellent benefits, very nice environment with personal office for every engineer.
