    Pros

    Good group of technical and smart people, in the trenches Compensation and benefits are ok Opportunity to be up to date with MS technologies

    Cons

    Impersonal management - command & control attitude (old school). Manager seem to believe they should know everything and should dictate; and "the troops" should follow (see above). Example: Some VPs worried about the code, testing, and the similar; instead of leading and strategizing (the big picture).

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the difference - Leadership (people) x Management (things) Leadership is not dictatorship, ruling by mandates How you treat and lead people will make you or brake you.

    Pros

    Pay was pretty good and the health benefits were excellent. The office was a beautiful location and high caliber environment to work in.

    Cons

    Senoir leadership has no strategy at all as result the direction of the company changes every 6-9 months. It seems like everything is being reinvented continuously even down to the company name, logo and colors. No way to ever deliver a solid brand or strategy. As result, no job security, people are promoted based on the leaders in power at the moment which changeas as the wind blows. VP's and Directors don't tell one another what they are doing so everyone works in silos. The corporate communication and atmosphere is as disorganized as their strategy. There is no communication and it shows throughout the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Put a real communication team in place and develop a collaborative corporate structure so the organization can actually develop a strategy and all work toward one conclusive goal. Fire the VP of communications who has no communication skills!
