Pros

You will work with very smart people

Cons

The compensation and incentive programs don't encourage collaboration or staying around. There is little reward for great people managers and no disincentive for poor ones. Decision making is held at the very top of the hierarchy which discourages risk taking or even straight talk.

Advice to Management

Change the compensation and incentive programs.
Push decision making lower down in the organization.
Drive more transparency. Everyone I work with is afraid to speak the truth.

    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 Management

    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.
