    Business plan seems to be "buy up smaller companies and bleed them dry."

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Germantown, MD

    Pros

    Nice facility in Germantown. Lower-level management has some knowledge of actual products and customers. Good benefits package. Good engineers at the company.

    Cons

    I was laid off, so I'm probably not completely objective. Completely short-term focused upper/middle management. Only concerned about performance on a quarter-by-quarter basis and progress toward the "BHAG" (A meaningless term if ever there was one).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A sustainable company is one with meaningful long-term goals. Making a bunch of money in the current quarter is not the goal that will get you there.
