Pros

Killer 401k. Competitive salary. Decent employee discounts and benefits. Certain business units are hot to trot.

Cons

Lukewarm health benefits. Archaic merit structure. Heavy and inefficient middle management. Other business units are not.

Advice to Management

If you want to be a competitive Silicon Valley startup, act like it. Put up or shut up.

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to shine and to build tools and processes that changes the organization.

    Cons

    Compensation was in the form on minuscule raises and not in promotions

    Advice to Management

    If an employee saves you millions, don't lay them off. Instead, promote them and compensate them appropriately.


  2. "Was" a great company - In a time of significant transformation. "hope" they become Great again...

    Pros

    Really Smart People, dedicated employees, they want to succeed

    Cons

    The Strategy doesn't manifest at the employee and 1st line mgr level - a must to be successful. With the rignificant HC reductions - those left have massive amounts of work to do (to backfill the efforts of those that left)

    Advice to Management

    Change the strategy - it's not working....and you've been at it 4-5 years now, seems like ample time "to see results and ensure it's working"...and it's not
