Pros

Benefits are great. Colleagues are dedicated to the products.

Cons

There is a long term vision for the company, however, there still lacks direction and guidance. Market research tells a different story from what management forces through the pipeline. Many employees are hired internationally but nothing seems to get done. Constant position vertical movements among management who are not great choices. Lack of recognition from management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop hiring people, there are enough people working there. It's not a positive thing when you have over 700 employees and cannot serve the needs of your customers. Look at the current employees and provide recognition to those who are capable, but weed out the employees who just drink coffee all day. Concentrate on what the INTERNATIONAL market wants otherwise you will miss global opportunities.

    Pros

    A technology focused organization with lots of smart people and clever ideas that applied Agile processes and solid engineering principals to deliver the highest-quality software.

    Cons

    There were too many changes in CEOs and corporate direction to maintain a clear vision for the company and its staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many successful companies run by the motto: "see a need, fill a need", however very few have been successful by first creating something and then afterwards going to look for people who need it.

    Pros

    Some of the people at Intercomponentware are good to work with. The benefits offered are very good. The work load is not too demanding.

    Cons

    Management is completely incompetent. They have no leadership skills and they squash all leadership shown from below. There is no reward for doing good work nor for being a team player. Only the jerks who stepped on others were rewarded with promotions when I was there. The biggest downfall of all is that corporate headquarters in Germany micromanages everything, which frustrates all attempts by US employees to sell the products in the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rebel against corporate influence. Force the people who do nothing all day to do work or leave. Focus less on sales and more on creating a sellable product. Reward those who actually achieve.
