What do you get when you cross Dilbert with the Titanic...

Business Analyst (Former Employee)

Pros- flexible schedule
- competitive salary
- people doing the work are incredibly talented, experienced and cooperative
- was employed there for almost 10 years and considered most of the folks I worked with as friends first, coworkers second
- can count on one hand the worker-bee-level people that I had to deal with that were a pain or difficult to get along with

Cons- almost all those talented and experienced people are gone now
- layoffs the past two years (mini-purge in 11/2011; massive purge (1/3 of company) in 12/2012-02/2013) have decimated the company
- folks left behind are stuck on a rudderless ship; and even if the current management could steer, have no confidence that they know what direction to go
- as others have indicated, there remains a huge disconnect between management and staff, and there appears to be no desire at all to acknowledge this gap, much less to determine a way to bridge it and create a solid company again

Advice to Senior Managementthis is a fairly pointless exercise, since the current management has no desire to listen to advice from anyone - and certainly not from a former employee.
however, I will provide this observation --- stop calling the staff a "low performing organization" when they have accomplished all the objectves set forth by management (hitting release dates with all desired functionality and at targeted quality levels). it is not the fault of the R&D, Operations and Support areas that the company is not making sales and bleeding clients.
perhaps an honest evaluation of the sales and marketing objectives - and the overall business plan (what number are we up to? i think there have been four "new directions" since Deb Gage took over) - is in order.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Wide and worsening chasm between senior management and everyone else
