Pros

There are a few good people there (less than 5% of the total population of the company though). There are some opportunities to learn from some long time participants in the computer/tech industry.

Cons

Very poor management (even under Meg). Poor product offerings, lack of innovation. Mediocre compensation (at best).

Advice to Management

Pay for quality people. Stop promoting political hacks. Try producing a product people want to buy and look more than 1 quarter ahead. Stop managing by spreadsheets.

    Pros

    Quality products provide an opportunity to be successful within your customer base.

    Cons

    Recent uncertainty with the PSG organization has sales people constantly explaining themselves to customers and the public ensuring them the company is still healthy and capable. It's distracting.

    Advice to Management

    Protect your employees by providing better proactive communications.

  2. Still re-inventing itself
