Pros

Company is under attack from Cisco and Microsoft as well as new technology firms putting telephony into the cloud. The private money firms that own the company have not been able to relaunch it as a public firm for many years and management has been forced to continue with personnel cutbacks to improve margins. New employees are subject to release and long time employees get to fill those vacancies.

Cons

Tough industry and a management team that has not delivered spells trouble and continued downsizing. Think hard before joining this firm.

    Pros

    Technology Leader. Tight link with customers who are, generally, very happy.

    Cons

    HR BS. They are constantly cutting away at employee benefits. They have artificial employee inclusion programs for highly rated staff, but each month the CEO gets us and tells us different reasons people have been fired. No kidding. He has an all hands meeting every month, and always finds an excuse to mention why he has fired someone either recently or in his past. And the HR organization follows the same caring culture.

    Advice to Management

    Employees first, please.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are pretty good. Had the opportunity to work with some great people that really care about doing a good job.

    Cons

    Resources are spread too thin. Many individuals have been asked to do the jobs of two or three people.

    Advice to Management

    Give some deep thought to what you can do to improve morale and make life better for your employees
