Well balanced, young tech company blended with large corporate issues

Sales Specialist (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsRelaxed environment, flexible hours and ability to work from home, great perks, decent benefits. Fast growing industry and entrepreneurial work place. Sales organization supplied with fully paid cell phone.
Management is willing to listen to employees about ideas on how to better the company and work environment, with genuine intention to help.

ConsAcquisition by EMC in late 2010 has led to many integration growing pains. Many managers seem overwhelmed with growth of the company, as hiring and scale has been unbalanced with amount of work increase. End of month and end of quarter requires 12+hr work days. Senior management can be very disconnected with very little interaction with the "front line" of the organization. Seems disorganized at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementDefine a solid growth plan, share it with the employees to help facilitate growth and understanding how to get where the company wants to go. Provide more opportunities to grow within the organization for young talent. More communication from the top down; lower level positions feel disconnected from the "heart" of the company.
