Pros

Management willing to consider new ideas and ways of doing things. Good, top talent people in the org. Good sales traction means bonuses are paid, which is nice in this economy. Not everything IT/HR is outsourced.

Cons

Most IT/HR is outsourced and therefore horrible. Too many untalented people in key positions. Web site is old fashioned. Planning process is old fashioned with fixed content and hard deadlines that are regularly missed. Weird org structure with docs centralised and too many people in India. Key products don't work as well as people think.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on the fundamentals: The core has to work to succeed, and some of it is very broken.

    Pros

    Casual office atmosphere which is good. The managers aren't all over your back all the time. They leave you alone as long as you're doing your job. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Some of the online training is not very useful. They also tend to sugar coat things to the employees when things aren't going well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more from without. Don't make false promises to your employees when you might not be able to follow through with it.

    No opinion of CEO
  2. Not a good place to work for people from good and cultured companies

    Pros

    Technology which is used in products is good, that's the only thing.

    Cons

    Information hiding, managers running the company, HR is just for name sake acting on Mgrs will. Bad old folks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency is the key, have 360 reviews, anonymous surveys. Organize skip meetings. Directly talk with individual. Train old folks.
