Pros

Job stability, interesting problem and challenging work environment, smart engineering staff. Good growth for the last decade.

Cons

less diversified workforce.You rarely see non-Asian engineers there, management from top down are all from one country. Some politics there for fighting different directions for product.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Salary is low compared with industry

    Pros

    Not a bad place to work - slightly better than average salary, good people, not high stress. Very understanding about life/work balance. Great product line and very well thought of in the industry.

    Cons

    Lots of disparity as far as territory went - often average salespeople did very well and top notch salespeople suffered because of bad territories. Management is nice but pretty much status quo - they aren't really natural leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest creating a stronger delineation between field and inside - also recognize who your best people are and don't always look at the numbers. Get people more excited - just don't sit their and drone and overstate the obvious....

    Pros

    Sohaib/CEO continually amazes - dedication, knowledge, leadership, humor, passion - all off the charts. He is someone you really want to follow into battle.
    Can't argue with growth and results this company has put up. Probably best in the Valley - grew right through the "Great Recession."
    Others in exec management have all been impressive, easily approachable, smart people - very pragmatic
    Benefits to employees are great - they really care and make employee morale a key part of every quarterly company meeting
    Sales Organization doesn't have the "I walk on water" mentality that so many other companies have.

    Cons

    With growth comes challenges - office space running out. More crunching to fit people in.
    Could push for better cross-organizational collaboration (sales, marketing, business units)
    Acquisitions pace fast and furious - can be hard to keep up (but that's part of what's expected)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be pragmatic (which you have been). Approve a corporate jet for the hardest working CEO in the Valley (no, Sohaib did not ask me to say this)!
