Employee morale is sinking... fast.

Certified I/T Specialist (Current Employee)
Montreal, QC (Canada)

ProsAccess to an incredible knowledge pool (think Master Inventors, Patent Owners, Distinguished Engineers, even Nobel Prizes), great internal collaboration tools allowing free-flow of information throughout the company and the globe, non-sales jobs provide lots of flexibility for side-projects that can add value to the company.

ConsWork-life balance is dwindling (just lost home internet reimbursement), micro-management is rampant, no one but people in sales jobs are 'safe' from 'reorganizations', pay structure makes it difficult to budget.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop being opportunistic in laying off people in this economic downturn and take care of your most important 'resource', as you call us ... your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
