    Pros

    You actually get an office in most locations! Cool people and a decent location. This company has a lot of potential. They have cool products and a great market.

    Cons

    Still to many managers and not enough workers. As much as I hate to say it. Office Space all the way. No direction and a lot of waste. Benefits are not the best.

    Advice to Management

    Quit

    Pros

    Comp is fair

    They invest in their personnel with training

    a few very dedicated and talented contributors spread throughout the organization

    they value process

    Cons

    management 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 Management

    Step aside.
