Solid enterprise software company nearing end of life

Development Manager (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

Pros- excellent compensation and benefits
- Fortune 500 customers
- solid legacy products
- flexible work environment and good work life balance
- nice offices

Cons- beauracratic, things move to slow
- no budget for training, travel, recognition
- constant lay-offs
- growth through acquisition and cost cutting
- no top line revenue growth from innovation

Advice to Senior Management- adapt faster to new technologies
- change business model instead of relying on lay-offs
- innovate

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