Former Employee - Finance in Frisco, TX

I worked at GENBAND full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

fitness room in Plano & Frisco, finance has monthly fajita lunch, day off for community service, some great people at the lower levels

Cons

no value for individuals, mgmt as a whole lack people skills and decision-making ability, revolving door for workers-good people keep leaving, too many consultants, spending goes unchecked

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on getting financially healthier and not just bigger. Curb the spending and compensate your employees based on the co size and market. Flatten the organization-too many layers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that employees are the firm's most valuable asset
    Reduce management expenses (Vail, Palm Beach trips) mgmt; reward employees instead

    Pros

    Challenging work, great and talented people, and a good place for graduates to get their bearings. With the acquisition of Nortel's CVAS BU, this has given Genband the bulk it needs to be a serios contender in the telecom industry.

    Cons

    More and more R&D work is being sent to non- North American sites. This is largely an effort to squeeze cost from the product line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider incubating more innovation rather than focusing on cost reduction as part of network transformation.
