    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people, get a plan and stick to it. Look at the number of levels of VP's and Directors, you may be able to develop more cutting edge products with less management and more workers.

    Pros

    The company offers excellent benefits. Our colleagues are highly skilled and friendly. The nature of the work is interesting and fulfilling.

    Cons

    Constant downsizing, offshoring, and outsourcing have destroyed morale. Merit increases are slashed every year. Jobs are eliminated without regard to talent, performance, or function, to meet quotas designed by accountants uninformed by reality. Senior management is obsessed with squeezing every penny ("We know that the company is doing well, but we don't want to leave anything on the table"). And this was before the current economic crisis -- now, merit increases (but not executive bonuses) are frozen, offices are being consolidated, workloads balloon, and jobs are always at risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Senior Management? Step aside and hand the reins to someone who cares about the long-term health of the company. Your focus on short-term profitability while sacrificing essential parts of our business is a recipe for long-term disaster.
