    Pros

    Very bright engineers who enjoy the technology

    Cons

    Extraordinarily cheap company which refuses to spend money on even the basics (office supplies, lab supplies, laptops, wireless that works); currently offers salaries below market value because of the bad economy; has very poor benefits (thank God for my wife's benefits!); many people seem bitter at the company culture of "do twice as much with half the support"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update from Lotus Notes, for God's sake! It has the worst GUI ever. That will save us many hours per week of extra work.

    Spend a little money to keep your employees happy; give them the tools they need to do their jobs. Otherwise, as the economy gets better, there will be a huge exodus.

    Cons

    Still in the 80s from managment style and tools.
    Not orgenized ....huge overhead and bad manag.
    Bad communication and lack of resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come and visit more often. Call some of the common employees to tell you what they think.
    You must solve those issues and revive the company .....remote control doesn’t work. for such a bad shape company ,you need to have team that doesnt afraid to do the hard work.

    Unfortunately you don’t have such a team.....Luckily you still have some good employee left ....but they are all rusted and need to be revived.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
