Good people, old technology, too much churn, understaffed, weak product strategy, and ineffective upper management.

Director (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

ProsGood people with lots of experience. Lots of technical capability. Decent salary and benefits for many. Some willingness to take risks on new product ideas and new technologies.

ConsWay too much management churn and staff turn over. Still trying to boil the ocean and support too many products. Old technologies and are rapidly becoming uncompetitive with newer software-based products.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on realistic strategies and product schedules and staff your programs appropriately to have a better chance at successfully shipping products on time.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
