    Pros

    Friendly employees, nice holiday parties, subsidised cafeteria, cafeteria has many choices compared to toher companies of a similar size or larger.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, marketing group tends to be cliquish, hires their former co-workers and show favortism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at who directors ans senior managers are hiring; very old school mentality.

    Pros

    Products are good and compete well against Cisco. Good/best sales people work thier tails off and get good starts - then support fails them.

    Cons

    The best sales people have left and newer/good ones leave every quarter. Always working on single quarter smaller deals vs. longer term large strategic deals. End-result is no one makes great money. Channels are still weak and no one seems to fix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the known Y/Y issues. Support. Marketing. Channels. Sales support. Way too much time on SFDC cadence monitoring and not enough on outside selling.
