Pros

- Great Products - Industry Leading Customers - Great Opportunities to Apply Industry Leading Solutions - Still Some Very Smart People Working There

Cons

- Management Team doesn't connect to proven success model in Manufacturing IT - Your True Talents won't drive your career in Aspen, the Customers will appreciate it, but Senior Management is likely to skewer you on a whim. - The best way to get ahead is on the corporate management team

Advice to Management

Get back to developing a stable of industry leaders; Understand why other suppliers don't have the problems you have supplying to the same customers. Why replace Managers who leave do to lack of success with people that are going to do it the same way?

    Pros

    -Interesting products -Some of the nicest people I have ever worked with (individual contributors and middle managers) -pay is good

    Cons

    -very VP heavy and they micro-manage like crazy -Highest turnover rate I've ever seen. -No ability to work flex time or remotely. -no work/life balance. For some teams, even sick days are frowned upon and lunch meetings ensure that you don't have a free hour in the day. -a lot of bait and switch with new hires. Hiring into one role or location and then changing those things once they start.

    Advice to Management

    They tend to not be open to any perspective other than their own, so changing that might be a good start. Looking at why they have such aggressive turnover would be another. I have never seen so few people make it to their second year at a company. It seems like if you weren't there 10 years ago, you aren't going to be able to hack it.
