Pros

It was a fast paced, technical environment. Great for those who are creative and also want to learn a variety of technologies in a short amount of time.

Cons

Executives are highly compensated individuals because they're expected to lead a company through the hills and valleys of today's global economic challenges. If anyone could do it, we'd all be applying for the job. A lot of families were hurt by a continuim of bad decisions within a poorly managed company.

Advice to Management

At the end of the day; you own the balance sheet. Many of us would love to have a job where we could say we lost millions because of soft markets. Being good operationally is no substitute for creative business management...hence the stock price. Speak as if you do "own" it. Use the words "I" or "We" for the good and the bad news.

    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
