Pros

I've got great and supportive manager and director, but that depends on department you're in. Good R&D culture. Good atmosphere, friendly and helpful coleges. There is a global reduction plan called GROW going on, you don't want to know what it really stand for :( [hint "get rid .... ?]

Cons

no pay rise since few years, simple decisions takes too long

Advice to Management

Invest in people!

    Pros

    Working conditions (space, platforms)
    Benefits (sports, medical, kindergarten)
    Teleworking
    People

    Cons

    Low wages (in Romania), if not a high level manager.
    No salary increase (since years)!
    Market pressure (the company is heading down)

    Advice to Management

    Refine your structure.
    Do not rely too much on India (or China). Eastern Europe also has potential and talented people. But you have to keep the valuable people.

    The company is still playing catch up despite having a handful of innovative products

    Pros

    Great work culture, good benefits, diverse culture and a strong focus on r&d - I worked in the European and APAC markets and enjoyed the challenge

    Cons

    Still holding on to their past achievements, not quick to adapt to market needs, has a massive middle management layer that they can do without

    Advice to Management

    Get out of loss making business asap, concentrate on wireless technologies, need to think of better ways of providing value to operators. Focus on retaining technical staff and not middle management. Empower local regional units with non-negotiable targets - there is too much autonomy but not enough accountability in the RUs.
