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

Pros

Good 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.

Cons

Way 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Very good benefits package, some smart people around the various organizations but you have to look hard for them. Solid products in some areas.

    Cons

    Trying to be too many things to too many people, company needs to focus on core strengths and do them well. Not a strong innovator and time has passed this company by in some respects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the organization lean and mean. Focus on key product and solution areas and stop trying to be more than you are. Be realistic about your competitive position.
