Farcical

Principal Engineer (Current Employee) Northridge, CA

ProsThere are still some of the finest technical folks in the world on the payroll. If you're a VP at any other corporation, it'll be easy to get a job here. Just say, "Oh, your problems aren't so hard. All you need to do is...[Insert imaginary silver bullet here]". They'll pay you a lot of money. It's easy to vacation in your office.

ConsNo one in top management knows anything about the audio industry. Company is an ATM and entertainment provider for the CEO and his co-conspirators. Revenue generation by sales at any price and margin management by cost cutting isn't a recipe for success. Age discrimination rampant. Relentless focus on emerging market growth is a disaster waiting to happen.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake short positions against your own company, if you haven't already.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
