    Very few opportunities for career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current Employee - Marketing  in  Milpitas, CA
    Current Employee - Marketing in Milpitas, CA

    Pros

    The company has a strong combination of benefits that can make the total compensation package more attractive than a straight salary comparison would indicate.
    One of a shrinking number of companies with a sabbatical program.
    The CTO has brought some new vision to the company.

    Cons

    Becoming an increasingly political environment in the upper levels of the organization.
    There has been some kind of "restructuring" every year for as long as I can remember.
    When they try to enter a new market or customer base, they try to build it with insiders with limited experience in the new area. It means the learning curve is long and can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look past what your being told and speak to the employees again. The CEO frequently did skip levels and sessions with the rank and file when he first started but that has stopped. The connection between the top and bottom of the organization needs to be restored.
