    Everything else. No collaboration. It is a top down approach.

    I worked at Blue Coat Systems (more than an year)

    Pros

    You like chaos. You thrive on office politics. You hate competence. They pay well. Worked with talented people albeit direct co-workers were not among them.

    Cons

    A lot of nonsense on a daily basis. Constant interoffice politics and changes in direction based on who's connected to whom, not what's best for the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hara kiri.
