Things can happen for you, but it's a bumpy ride

Software Development Manager (Former Employee)
Alpharetta, GA

ProsA large organization with many resources, functions, events, if you can find the right contact. Been part of a group working on a cool technology that kept interest going.

ConsA large organization with a good layer of bureaucracy, unhealthy doze of politics at top level. In and out of hiring freezes took a great hit on team and morale.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop doing erratic decisions, and smooth out your hiring / layoff cycles. Too many layers of management. Better segment your business as there are many unrelated parts that share infrastructure that is designed only for the fattest cow. Need to become much more nimble.

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