Pros

Very active development with potential to work on many areas. Top performers are rewarded for their efforts. Overall, the work environment is good.

Cons

Need to streamline development environment to make things easier to do your job. Everyone wants to be a manager, but many do not have the skills to be an effective manager.

Advice to Management

Need to stress quality over the schedule. The pressure to meet the schedule causes unacceptable shortcuts that impact quality.

    Pros

    Used to be a great place for self-starters and star players; Good opportunity for people who want to learn about L2 and L3 networks or SAN storage networks.

    Cons

    Teams have lost the steam... Cream of talented people have left or in the process of leaving the company already. No learning opportunities. HR's highly discourage or ensure that employees don't move between jobs. So obviously employees quit or perform poorly in the current role.

    Advice to Management

    There is no solid management team. Company and the management team have lost the steam. There is no CEO, VP of Sales. Lots of engineering teams don't have senior management for almost a year. Only advice to Senior Management: Pay well to retain your talented employees... including your line managers.
