Pros

Good cultural foundation in the Operating Values, diversity networks. Lots of smart, engaged employees at the mid to lower level. Excellent benefits and workplace environment.

Cons

Particularly in the past two years, the "say/do" ratio of senior management has become increasingly inconsistent. Each successive restructuring was also more dysfunctional than the previous one. Lack of clarity about which responsibilities were transferred (if at all) and to whom. Especially an issue for support organizations depending on the business units for direction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management, especially in the Small Business group, has become a close-knit club seemingly incapable of making hard trade-offs. Instead of making tough decisions about killing projects or initiatives,they appear to reply on eliminating the jobs, but without clarity around what work should be eliminated as well. The result is an even more stressed-out "survivor" population.

    Pros

    Great products, great culture, great work life balance- work hard and play hard culture. Meet real customers that use and love our products.

    Cons

    Like every other corporate American company, there are some bad managers within the company and there are some bad departments that are dysfunctional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep institutional knowledge by promoting from within - there are several employees in the middle ranks that have a lot of knowledge of the processes and systems that can be great leaders

    Pros

    Stable company in a shaky economy. Good benefits, alright gimmes, albeit with stink of ulterior motive at times. Not bad.

    Cons

    Miscommunication is commonplace, as is lack of communication of important changes. False communication is common as well; for example, encouraging "speaking up" in meetings, just to be heard, but regardless of substance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Working quickly and with agility can be done without cutting corners. And it's best to make sure that you are looking out for the staff and the customer, especially when the advertised motto revolves around it.
