Pros

Open vacation time, ability to work from home. Great work life balance. Good health care packages

Cons

- Extremely poor management
- Directionless, entire teams let go.
- Nepotism from CEO.
- No continuity.
- Hire people that are not afraid of learning something new, rather than shutting programs down because they don't understand.

Advice to Management

Might be a good idea to stop hiring your friends and fill upper management with talent. Have accountability at all levels

    Pros

    None really. Used to be a decent place to work with some smart talented people. One product still profitable. May be a decent takeover target

    Cons

    Just when we thought things couldn't get any worse - it did. Poor compensation, no bonus, no direction, no 401(K) match. draconian management. Sales teams rule the roost. Morale in the toilet. Most of the top talent have fled. Rest are biding their time. Impossible to find anyone excited to work here anymore

    Advice to Management

    stop! take a deep breath and have a phased roll-out of whatever it is you are doing. Maybe we can still recover

    Pros

    Pays well, benefits are great. Company culture used to be great. Co-operation among departments that don't traditionally communicate in other companies.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Blatant favoritism to certain employees. C level managers came and went very rapidly in the last 3 years. No checks and balances-bad HR leader, bad senior level management and nowhere to let any one know of the bad leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Someone should be checking the performance of VPs and asking their direct reports to evaluate them on a regular basis. HR should be a place employees can feel comfortable taking their work issues to rather than being punished for reporting negligence and incompetence.
