Not a great place. Getting tougher and tougher day by day to remain even slightly motivated.

Pros

Bright and talented coworkers. Most of them would be nice to hang out with, if they weren't always so depressed about this place.

Cons

This might take some time
i) No respect for employees as persons
ii) No honesty in communication with the team
iii) No transparency in management
iv) No respect for work-life balance
v) No long term planning - shifting "long term plans" every few days
vi) Terrible competition amongst groups to switch the blame to each other
vii) Constant pressure year round

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    The company is profitable but off the backs of its employees. It has remained competitive but through cut throat management tactics. Shareholders love to invest in this type of company.

    Cons

    This is one of those companies where the employees are slave driven like pack mules and expected to put in massive overtime. The shareholders are more important than the employees, and financial savings (through outsourcing eg) is preferred over product quality. The lack of project communication is unnerving, and there is no five year plan, only reactive decisions to customer whims.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating employees like barcoded commodities. Hire managers who can inspire employees, not just track their time and effort. Encourage work-life balance.
