    I worked at BDNA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    New products launching but need marketing support =leads

    Cons

    Need marketing!/awareness/branding!
    What does BDNA stand for?
    Top exec sits at cube in main open office environment--babysitting/intimidating/smothering environment
    B office quality, lame facilitates, a/c poor.
    Culture very silent, not social, stale, boring, and morale mediocre.
    Very diverse so no unity, cohesiveness, interaction.
    Understaffed in all but engineering.
    small team and geographically dispersed to divisivea nd inefficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move top exec out of main employee area.
    become a non-engineering/techy driven co.
    Improve morale.
    Try some employee recognition......
    Make culture upbeat, friendly, and enjoyable-not the opposite.
    Special events are nice but need to improve offcie environment-work day feel.
    Stop marketing dept revolving door!
    Admit you attract /hireB players if lucky not A players!
    Staff up to increase chances for growth.
