Avoid at all costs - miserable people led by blind CEO

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsYou can get discounted electronics (refurbished sometimes).

ConsCost cutting of US work force for India. They have let go of all the good engineers and scramble when projects the engineers were working on suddenly go into crisis. Poor executive management that needs pinches pennies on individual contributors but fly half way around the world for a "meeting" . Poor company wide organization. Executives lead through fear - if you don't play ball or drink the Kool-aid then don't bother coming to work. CEO makes blind decisions and has blatantly lied in the press twice.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet CEO go asap and clean house.

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