    Pros

    Technology and field are wonderful.
    Old Gaurd at company are creative and a joy to work with.
    Launching products is fun.

    Cons

    Company gets in the way of its own success.
    Terrible growth opportunities.
    Poor reputation in industry.

    Advice to Management

    There is a fundamental lack of understanding on basic economic drivers at the company. If they understood the economics of their business, they would be able to lower cogs, allocate resources better and be more competitive.


  2. Frantic Work Pace

    Pros

    Good products and interesting work environment. Very bright people. Great benefits and good salaries. Good sized company (1100 employees world-wide) and ability to make a difference.

    Cons

    Very much a "hurry up and wait" culture with tinges of bullying throughout the organization, especially in Human Resources.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay attention to employee surveys and follow-up on feedback immediately if inappropriate behavior and bullying is reported in any area.
