    Pros

    Pay is not bad. Ability to work away from the office.

    Cons

    Politics. See a lot of people being hired as long as they are the same nationality of the hiring manager. Same for promotions. Seems like upper management doe not notice or does not care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the development side of the business, more patience is required. Seems like you talk about Design, but mostly are interested in the CM business. Do something to shut down the cronyism. One business unit shuts down, the CEO moves to another business unit and starts hiring the same people back from the unit that failed.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Exposure to a variaty of products. Good environment for a highly tactical person. Fairly easy to get a job there. If you are one that can shut-up and follow orders, you will do well here.

    Cons

    Management lacks depth of knowledge and does not demonstrate ability to strategize. Very reactive environment. Minimal focus on long term solutions. Highly political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk your talk when it comes to customer focus. Think more strategically and utilize more of the talent in the middle and lower ranks.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
