Great people and great ideas...but they fall down when it comes to execution.

Pros

Good benefits, decent work locations, and friendly people. If you get a good manager who can drive decisions, things go smoothly.

Cons

Lack of individual responsibility - most people there don't know the meaning of a hard deadline. Middle management heavy so there's plenty of petty politics.

Advice to Management

Most of your middle managers do not know how to manage...and IT is a joke.

    Pros

    Great company in innovation and technology development.

    Cons

    Poor leadership vision; constantly shifting initiatives and focus just for the sake of change.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your mid-management, develop and promote people base on their merits not on how well they play the political game.
