Pros

Stable work environment with job security. Scheduling time off is rarely an issue for any reason.

Cons

Knowledge is kept in islands which rarely communicate effectively. Management is always in crisis mode, rather than giving workers the time to do a good job up front. Despite good quarterly earnings, management is slow to hire despite the desperate need. Promotions and career advancement are nonexistent unless you are among the select few chosen ones.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop crisis mode: allow us to fix problems before they become problems. Promote deserving workers every once in a while. Otherwise, your immense product knowledge and expertise will be walking out the door once the economy is in full recovery.

    Pros

    Some great staff to work with. Nice people, hard working with good customer service orientation. If you focus, you can pick up some good experience in the technology. Many talented, smart people in middle management.

    Cons

    Micros corporate does not respect its staff. Official personnel policies more suitable to a fast-food restaurant than a team of professionals. Benefits are terrible and are sometimes downgraded without notice. Short-sighted layoffs occured last year based on an irrelevent criteria. Innovation is squashed by overcontrolling corporate policies. There just doesn't seem to be any interest in encouraging enthusiasm or new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to micromanage staff and let them do a good job. Show respect to get respect.
