Pros

BSC makes products that help people and is a huge company with excellent benefits and fair wages, Hopefully they can maintain competitiveness and continue innovating.

You really have to play politics and fight for recognition.not alot of reward or recognition at individual employee level

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize the individual employees, there is talent,Start treating people as individuals, not like faceless, undifferentiated cogs in the machine

    Pros

    Good opportunities to learn about the CRM business and develop relationships with business staff. Local customers are great to work with and very appreciative of our efforts.

    Cons

    Very poor management at headquarters, out of touch with reality, no concept of people management, no leaders, no strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managing people is at least as important as managing projects. Technical knowledge and expertise is sorely needed to provide guidance to leadership as well as to less experienced offshore resources. Create a real technical I.S. career path. Start treating people as individuals, not like faceless, undifferentiated cogs in the machine.

    Pros

    the company still attracts great people, who are fun, talented and care about the products they make. Flexibility in work fairly good. Great products, its rewarding to see those that receive the products and see how their lives are improved.

    Cons

    not alot of reward or recognition at individual employee level. Decisions made in Corporate based on short term financial reasons, there is a continual fear of job instability, lay-offs and lack of career potential so that hampers employees too--too bureaucratic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the individual employees, there is talent, knowledge and passion that could help contribute, solve problems and drive success. There is a feeling among current and past employees that the top executives don't really care about the individual contributors.
