Pros

Good culture, jerks don't last, decent benefits...

Cons

Tough to get paid what you are worth - always looking for a bargain except top level execs. More an HR issue than anything else - Managers hands are often tied...

Advice to Management

Loosen up and pay your top people - don't make us threaten to quit before giving a raise - BAD way to run a company...

    Pros

    i get a paycheck better than unemployed.

    Cons

    no payraises. work life balance is terrible. I was acutally told that i had to check email and have my phone with me while on vacation no exceptions.In my jos i am REQUIRED to work virtually EVERYDAY. I will leave as soon as i can,

    Advice to Management

    Treat people as though they matter and give internal candidates the opportunity to move up instead of move out. they only way to move up in your career is to leave HDS.
    Ditch the quota based review system as you can only have certain %'s of employees rated highly.

    Pros

    My immediate manager and their peers are very professional, and even-keeled. Third level management (for my division, based in the UK) are nice enough. My team members are all pleasant, competent, and helpful. There doesn't seem to be any of the back-biting I've seen at some places.

    Cons

    Although the UK based management are nice, they seem to be a tad out of touch with the "cube dwellers" here in the US. It could be attributed to a difference in cultures -- after all, Silicon Valley Engineers can be a touch..... "out there".
    There have been some recent grumblings of discontent and several engineers have left due to dissatisfaction with recent executive project decisions. To be fair however, I feel management is putting forth a concerted effort to reverse the attrition.

    Advice to Management

    Continue your efforts to retain good people as the Valley's job market for engineers seems to be heating up. I'm not one to advocate that employees be coddled, but when folks feel their efforts are wasted they'll look for a place where they are appreciated. That lead to a lot of lost productivity and re-invention of the wheel.
