Pros

Absolutely great co-workers. Some of the brightest people I have ever met! The environment for learning is great! The teamwork is exceptional in the software group I have been in.

Cons

The pay stinks - No raises, No bonuses, NOT competitive. Management doesn't listen to ideas Too much work (and more continues to come) not enough PEOPLE! The older employees are no longer motivated, simply waiting for retirement eligibility. It seems most of upper management came over with Antonio from HP

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. You need new younger engineers. You need to refine your product management processes so things get done faster. MOST IMPORTANTLY: Get rid of upper management (I guess you won't fire yourself). DON'T SELL YOUR ONLY PROFITABLE SOFTWARE GROUPS!!!!

    Pros

    Once a great place to work, but those days are long gone.

    Cons

    Bad leadership for too many years, huge bureaucracy, no raises, no career growth, low morale

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Perez and the rest of upper management, accept the fact that the company won't be around much longer.
