    Pros

    Great technical offering. Shame the technology doesn't live within a more supportive company.

    Cons

    Very discouraging, political environment. I was hired to accomplish specific things and when I embarked on these projects I hit brick walls all over the place. Recommendations fell on deaf ears with little or no support from my chain of command to do what I was hired to do.

    Advice to Management

    The field doesn't think company leadership walks the talk. Some leaders are okay but overall they are unresponsive, listen selectively and mostly out of touch with what is happening outside the ivory tower. They won't, or are afraid to, confront the hard issues.

    Great executives, mid-management needs a refresh.

    Pros

    Really cares about its employees as evidenced by compensation and benefits. There is a lot of opportunity for the right person, but be aware of the downsides to determine if you are the right person. Mark is very approachable and a blast to talk to.

    Cons

    Some managers seem to only want yes-men working for them. Disagree and you will be treated as an outsider. There doesn't seem to be a good career path for marketing people and the way that marketing is matrix managed makes it difficult to do your job and get appropriate feedback. Sometimes it seems like there is a tug of war between marketing and the product groups and product marketing gets caught in the crossfire.

    Advice to Management

    Find out what employees are really thinking. Many are afraid to speak out in the survey.
