Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Pros-Great products
-Leader in the industry
-Friendly co-workers

Cons-Inefficient organizational structure; management makes up positions for their friends
-management has poor communication skills
-The executive management are all technical and sales guys; they do a good job in bring in sales and innovating new products; however, they are not businessmen and don't know how to run a company.

Advice to Senior Management-Stop hiring friends and start hiring competent people externally
-Hire a COO to take care of operations of the organization
-Cut spending

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
