Pros

Extremely intelligent people to work for. Scientists etc... The product is great and the company just went through a merger and will grow substantially in the next few years. The company will do alot of hiring, however they only hire as contract, and not as a full time permanent employee.Therefore there are no benefits involved.

Cons

Poor management, some do not know what they are doing, they have no previous experience managagin people.
Staff employees do not comunicate well with contractors, they seem to ignore contractors.

Advice to Management

Learn people skills...you get more output from your employees if you ask nicely instead of demanding.

    Pros

    People have passion and desire to do well. They are truly on the edge of technology and one of the only companies in the market doing this type of work.

    Cons

    Tightly held, micro-managed, respect for individuals as professionals is missing, ability to success and think on your own is great hampered by the strong central control of one person.

    Advice to Management

    Let the leaders be leaders. Stop micro managing and creating an environment of fear.


  2. Great people....too much middle management
