It's just a job.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Ann Arbor, MI

ProsThe atmosphere is casual, though that's changing a bit.
Management generally lets you come and go like an adult.
Medical benefits are pretty decent.
Co-workers aren't usually hostile.

ConsUpper management has been stripped of all authority since the Micros-Retail acquisition.
Middle-management titles are handed out like candy, in lieu of higher compensation.
Spot bonuses and / or salary adjustments are frequently promised, but rarely (if ever) materialize.
Employees with seniority are leaving en masse, and morale is terrible.
Projects and initiatives are reactive, rather than proactive, forever changing when a wheel gets squeaky.
General lack of direction and purpose in most departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementGather more information from Micros before terrifying employees in all-hands meetings (e.g. "We're more profitable than we've ever been, and that's why nobody's getting their annual bonus. Or we might.")
Stop making small token gestures to boost morale, and make a real one. Money and security are things you can take home. Leftovers from client meetings and access to a Kinect aren't.
Acknowledge that individuals are doing the work of two or more people because of the exodus, and adjust your expectations accordingly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
