Pros

It's a paycheck until something else pops up. Nothing more.

Cons

There is no stability at all. Jobs are slowly sent to India or one of the regional centers created in the States. Layoffs are all too common. There is zero training provided and management has no idea what their poeple do because everybody is remote.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Middle management needs to value their employees more. Sr Management is a lost cause. Totally clueless. SDM's that think they know what they are doing but have no idea how to manage an account.

    Pros

    Flexible with personal life.
    Good benefits.
    Room to grow: you can move across groups, departments, etc. relatively easily.
    Culture that promotes integrity.

    Cons

    Budget freezing is crippling teams. The 'do more with less' mentality needs to stop.
    Decisions from execs and finance are negatively affecting teams.
    Benefits could be better compared to other high tech companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep teams together, don't tear them apart, especially when they succeed in putting out a good product. Bring in more people to bolster teams or you're going to lose good talent that you already have.
