Pros

Most of the people here are good people looking to do good things. Overall it's a respectful environment. Also, the company offers some good benefits such as a matching 401K, life insurance, onsite gym and cafeteria.

Cons

Life at BSC is very hierarchical and revolves around pay grade, job title, and do you get an office or a cube; this goes on to dictate what duties you can perform and not perform and what meetings you can attend and not attend. This would be frustrating in its own right but to add to the frustration hierarchical rules (written and unwritten) are not enforced with any uniformity.

Additionally, very little opportunity for career advancement and management often attempts to pacify employees with lateral moves with the justification it is broadening your skillset.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create transparent career tracks; reduce hierarchical red tape.

    Pros

    Lots of indepedance to work on your own projects

    Cons

    You are not given much direction by upper management. Too much focus on cost cutting and not enough of developing new technologies or markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to align the company objectives to employee responsibilities.

    Pros

    Competitive compensation. Innovative technology through organic growth and acquisition. Commitment to operational excellence.

    Cons

    Exceptionally political environment at the VP level and higher. Decisions made that are not necessarily in the best interest of the company as a whole, and in many instances only benefit an individual, or a specific clique.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many individuals have been in positions of power for too long without demonstrated value. Time to clean house.
