Pros

great people that want to do a great job but are "hamstrung" by lousy leaders and suffocating processes!!

Cons

middle- and top-level managers take incompetence to new, incredibly high levels!! processes allow very little room for innovation and quick reaction to customer needs...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get a clue on what needs to be done to become a top-performing company by LISTENING to the employees that are actually delivering the work!!

    Pros

    Large company that can write its losses off to save other sectors. Pretty laid back work environment. They are not big into micro managing.

    Cons

    Work processes are confusing and expectations not realistic.Real work often gets completed. Org changes are a monthly deal around there including frequent layoffs. Worked there for 2 years and had 3 managers. Leadership has been iffy due to poor sales, technology direction, a recent CEO change. It reminds me of a major league game being played with no formal playbook. Finally raises are null and void. Negotiate up front because you may be stuck with the same salary for years to come.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devise a realistic plan and stick to it. Stop inventing stuff on the fly. Pay your employees that work at this billion dollar company!!! The outsourcing madness is costing more pain than having staff employees!
