    Living "Quarter-to-Quarter" is not a good way to run a business.

    Pros

    Very professional atmosphere -- (peer-to-peer)
    Management is very supportive and flexible when granting unscheduled time off (hours or days)
    Office work environment is good.

    Cons

    Quarterly layoffs (many performed stealthly) is killing morale, and stressing out remaining employees.

    Outsourcing....outsourcing...outsourcing..
    U.S. employees are overworked.
    Older employees are being systematically purged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop announcing a 5-Year Plan every Year!

    Having many smaller customers, is better than having a small number of "key" customers.

    Too much focus on "key" customers...Loss of "key" customers have a more profound impact on company stability than the loss of smaller customers.

    Some investments (projects) are abandoned too swiftly in favor of short-term gain.

    Focus more on the employee as a "stake holder", RATHER THAN THE INVESTOR.

    Pros

    - great manager
    - wonderful people
    - excellent, affordable benefits
    - good remote training opportunities
    - treated with respect

    Cons

    - was assured when I took the job that it would be stable and that if my particular role went away that there would be other opportunities. I left a very, very secure job, so this was important to me. Despite exceeding all expectations (I have the Annual Performance Review as proof), I was laid off after 1 yr and 9 months
    - the company granted me a few weeks off for bilateral knee replacement surgery - that was nice - but then laid me off 3 months after I returned. Related?? I don't know, but performance wasn't the issue (see above)
    - the company is Obama-like: all kinds of webcasts and communications about how the management software and premium features will become competitive in a time frame that is committed to, and it NEVER HAPPENS. As far as I'm concerned, they are too concerned about what their OEM partners will 'accept' than they should be. They should focus on making the products industry-leading, then let the OEM partners come begging. It is NEVER A BAD IDEA to have leading edge products. Too much talking, absolutely NO action
    - poor forethought in product design. A system was released with both FC and iSCSI ports, but if a customer wanted to deploy remote mirroring capability it took half the ports such that the box would be virtually unusable if it was ordered with 2 FC and 2 iSCSI ports. So, in the end, if a customer wanted to deploy remote mirroring, they had to order the box with 4 FC ports, so the iSCSI feature was mute. Intelligent planning and designing would never deliver such a lame result

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advise if to get NEW management. Too much talk, too little action.
