Things were getting tough long before the 2008 Recession..

Technical Writer (Former Employee)

ProsWorked with a pool of intellegient, knowlegeable, and very hardworking software developers. They did some fantastic work in the context of multiple large project assignments, limited time and resources, and ever-changing product features requirements and customer delivery deadlines.

ConsFocus of upper and middle management always seemed to be on rewarding projects and products that provided immediate revenue and profit payoffs. Worthwhile attempts to improve current technology and processes were not given proper support, both poliitcal and business. Cost-cutting seemed to be the overriding objective, with employee benefits, retirement plans, severance packages constantly being further trimmed and ongoing layoffs a persistent threat.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on creating releveant, high-demand products very well.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
