Pros

Easy, laid back. Good place to work if you just want to put in time and go home.

Cons

Low pay Bad benefits untrained/ignorant management no training no room for advancement expensive benefits

Advice to Management

Stop penalizing the people who do all the work and who train and try to advance. Stop getting in the way with stupid ideas out of a magazine that you read on an airplane and basing everything off buzzwords. Stop promoting the slackers and incompetent people because this is where your problems start compounding. And pay better to attract talent and get off the 10 ten worst places to work list.

    Good place to start your career, worst place to stay for a long time.

    Pros

    It is easy to get a job in this company.

    Cons

    So many to list. 1. Management has no directive. 2. Horrible benefits. 3. Pay at least 15% less than competitors. 4. They nickel and dime everything. 5. Stupid core hours. 6. No communication between groups. They made every one in software engineering work 50 hrs/week for almost 6 months for new product release. The product was successful, but the higher management (CEO and president) should have at least sent an thank you email.

    Advice to Management

    The entire management should be sacked and replaced with new management.

    Pros

    Steady pay checks such as they are, easy to coast through without much effort. Cheap TV. That's about it.

    Cons

    Read the other reviews and you'll find many that point out flaws in this company. The problem is that the flaws go so deep that no single review can cover them all: Low pay, misguided micro-management, poor benefits, top down dictates, lack of respect for employees (ideas, abilities, careers) by upper management, a corporate culture of continued mediocrity because that's the way we've always done it. The list just goes on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Same advice given by others: you need to change the corporate culture and that requires overhauling the upper management.
