Pros

You can get away with extreme incompetence and not being unprodutive. Work hours are mostly flexible. If you don't want to do anything, try to get a job at Exelixis.

Cons

If you are somewhat productive, you will be stuck with all the workload while other people may be just sitting around and taking long lunches.

Advice to Management

Please try to recognise the competent / productive employees, not the loyal ones.

    Pros

    The people are extremely helpful. They are always willing to offer a helping hand, are supportive of your efforts, and offer constructive criticism to help make your work higher quality.

    Cons

    It can be very busy with some pretty tight deadlines. They have very high expectations of all their employees. As with any company I have worked for, I am cynical of the honesty of upper management.

    Advice to Management

    You can be more open and honest with the employees.

    Pros

    Great co-workers; fairly good benefits package; excellent inter and intra team cooperation; competent HR; great Xmas to NYE break; good employee parties; excellent severance packages per RIF 3/2010!

    Cons

    Management from 2nd level upwards is duplicitous, self-centered and barely conscious. People's titles are ridiculously overstated, making "senior management" a sort of elite club of directors, etc. Little 2 way communication: the info dribbles down from top; input from below isn't actively sollicited. New president is just a retread of failed former president. I hold little hope for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Retrench; develop some humility; flatten the organizational structures; consider outsourcing IT to a SAAS provider; pay closer attention to how your employees feel about their jobs.
