Very basic compensation and benefits. You drive your own career development. Management needs much improvement.

    Pros

    Work environment is little bit relax compared to other companies. Compensaton is OK compared to other companies. Overall not a bad company work.

    Cons

    May not be good company if you are interested to work in a company with advanced technolgy. Usually this a not a leading company in technology field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should pay more attention to employee's need. Also they should spend more time and money to let employee to become more efficient and experienced.

    Pros

    Compensation is good. Products and technology are interesting and have real potential. Some very talented senior leaders. Employees watch out for each other when they can.

    Cons

    Opacity is the rule about the most senior levels of managment and issues or decisions facing the company. Few ever challenge, let alone, confront their managers, and no one questions the C-suite executives. Lower level employees are sometimes thrown under the bus to protect their managers from criticism or responsiblity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull back the kimono. The employees might surprise you and give support ti the man behind the curtain. There are some great leaders in management who are not allowed to lead.
