Pros

-Free food -Peers and employees in other groups generally very helpful -Possibility of learning about how a nation-wide network operates -Benefits were pretty decent, similar to other tech companies

Cons

-NOC management selected due to personal relationships with upper management -All management has no actual training or much in the way of management ability -No real opportunities for growth or movement within the company -Caste-based system rewards those who are cronies of management -One mistake for non-friend of management will result in termination, no so if you're in with the boss

Advice to Management

Try to grow up and run a publicly-traded corporation like a business, not like high school. Dividing your employees into the 'cool kids' and the 'non-cool kids' is an excellent way to decrease morale and lower overall corporate performance. Of course, the stock price reflects that lately...

    Good company... with growing pains

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Account Executive in Tempe, AZ
    Current Employee - Account Executive in Tempe, AZ
    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Great work culture - open communication - Very little micro-management or internal politics - Experienced, passionate senior management team - Access to strong sales tools to help optimize prospecting capabilities - Strong professional services and solution engineering teams (but they need more headcount!) - Nice benefits; complementary food/drinks/snacks

    Cons

    - Weak process controls - i.e. order management controlled via archaic home-grown ticket system requiring multiple entries of same data to communicate within different departments - Limited career growth opportunity outside sales. Wastes a lot of time. - At times, product team seem disinterested in supporting new emerging sales opportunities that require extra time on their side to scope an appropriate custom solution, slowing the sales cycle. - Weak marketing support into strategic areas of emerging business focus. Wants to expand reach to Enterprise verticals, but still focuses majority marketing activity on traditional media/entertainment markets.

    Advice to Management

    Look to increase investments into other areas in the organization (i.e. marketing, order processing/account management controls) as strategic areas of opportunity to help drive business growth and customer retention. Expand brand awareness activities into new emerging markets - especially into Enterprise markets that have a high sales expectation around them.
