    Pros

    There is a lot of interesting work and customers with challenging problems. The company is a large portfolio of hardware and software solutions to work with.

    Cons

    Poor communications between software development uniits were tolerated by management. Management never communicated its goals leaving engineering and consulting in the dark. Software quality was so poor that customers were dissatisfied and continuously threatening to halt the projects. Payment was withheld leading to more pressure to cut costs and diminished software quality. There was no QA on software prior to installation at the customer site. There were many problems with benefits administration caused by the third party firm hired to manage those items.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to communicate with your staff. Set some objectives. Take advice from people that understand software development processes. Try to get a grip on project management.
