I have been working at Genesys full-time

Pros

- tons of smart people - possibility to learn - interesting projects can be found - company has some growth momentum - partial telecommute possible - Open Time Off

Cons

- poor career opportunities - morale degrading without adequate salaries - questionable HR policies to introduce Open Time Off (2-day notice, no vacation balance compensation) - creative, while obviously the cheapest, team building approaches that do not work

Advice to Management

start paying your engineers market salary before morale is dead and before good specialists leave or get completely demotivated. it's demoralizing and insulting to hear 'why would I give you a raise, you are not leaving' from the top technical officer. you are facing a dead-end promising to hire crème de la crème (and pay accordingly) when the present talent is disgruntled with salaries and such a treatment from management.

    I have been working at Genesys full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good People to work with technically and socially Interesting technology Tele work available New product line is strating to gain momentum in the market place

    Cons

    employee moral is low due to internal re-org taking much longer than expected. Current executives only giving lip service to CEO - not actually walking the talk.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that promotions are fair and given to thise qualified not those connected. There is too much of the ols Alcatel mentality still in the works.
