Good Company, great products!! ...But they have a Passive/Agressive Culture.

Pros

Great perks! Great benefits, bring your dog to work in some locations, flex time, etc. Good training and development programs, possible career growth, but very polictical. Nice people...everyone is friendly.Great products.

Cons

Their motto is work hard, play hard...and it is very demanding company. They don't do conflict well. If you disagree with the status quo, you are looked at as a trouble maker. So, everyone agrees with the status quo, but trashes this issues or problems behind managements back. They don't talk about the 'white elephant' in the room or are direct about anything. Very polictical.

Advice to Management

Learn that conflict is ok, from disagreements, great break though and ideas can come. HR is afraid of conflict and it is suppressing the creative of the company. No one can be open or authentic. They is a lot of fear about being open and authentic there.

    The company tries to do the right thing but is rather dysfunctional.

    Pros

    Nice headquarters. Largely cool people but you run across quite a few "it's not my job" type of people even though it is their job for some basic things I needed from them.

    Cons

    There is a severe lack of process there. For every little thing you do, you have to reinvent the wheel every single time. Meetings, meetings and more meetings. This can't totally be avoided because of the geographically dispersed offices, but half the meetings can easily be cut out.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to top-down initiatives to standardize processes and streamline simple things. It will save a lot of time and money.
