    Pros

    not micro-managed
    decent pay and benefits
    sr. management genuinely has employees interests in mind
    nice campus in Wilsonville; nice facility in San Jose

    Cons

    can be political (isn't that true everywhere?)
    company is not on a strong growth path. Employee growth suffers as a result. Stagnant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take risks, move into new markets, grow the company. How can you fit into the "new economy"?
    consider better stock options and incentive plans for non-sales employees

    Recommends
