Cons

-no career growth path
- salaries are stagnant and bonuses non-existent

Advice to Management

- Encourage new ideas for business and streamlined processes.
- Hold the management (including yourselves) accountable when business isn't good.

    Pros

    good pay for Mobile area

    Cons

    too many to list. New GM is a hachet man, has run off most of the folks that built the division. Ones he brought in have left. Too late getting into Linux and Android, ignored the customer base that built the company, best people leaving in droves. Haven't hit sales quota in forever. Only Mentor's stupidity to keep pumping cash into this failed endeavor keeps the doors open. You'd find better morale in Hell.

    Advice to Management

    Change for the sake of change was stupid. I guess you know that now.
