Don't waste your time

Senior Systems Analyst (Current Employee) Chandler, AZ

ProsThe employees are good people trying to make an honest living.
Some co-workers are very intellegent and passionate about technology
Benefits are about average
Pay is slightly above average for the Phoenix market

ConsManagers have no clue what they are doing
Stock price dropping fast, each quarterly meeting is more and more depressing
Very high attrition rate. I have seen managers quit in less than 2 weeks
Lots of layoffs
Poor reputation in the industry
Also, if you are taking a signing bonus, know that you are locked in for 2 years or you owe it back.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to your employees needs
Put for effort into your hiring process
Stop using "body shop" recruiting firms and contractors

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
