Once full of potential and opportunity, no longer positioned to lead industry

Senior Product Manager (Former Employee) Burlington, MA

ProsComp is fair

They invest in their personnel with training

a few very dedicated and talented contributors spread throughout the organization

they value process

Consmanagement layers are dense

decision making process is slow and very bureaucratic

executive leadership is out of touch, disconnected from the realities of the products, customer and markets

one size fits all approach to managing almost everything in the organization limits everyone's ability to be effective

shared services model for hardware engineering is dysfunctional

Advice to Senior ManagementStep aside.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
