Overall very good, but stay out of SDD

Product Marketing Manager (Former Employee) Longmont, CO

ProsThe company as a whole provides very competitive salaries & benefits package, probably one of the best in the industry.

ConsThe Systems Design Division (SDD) based in Longmont, CO is a very toxic & unhealthy environment in which to work. The GM is very narcissistic & runs the division with a very military style iron fist (Vietnam vet). Consequently his direct reports (Product Line Directors) are becoming clones of him & really have next to zero personal management skills. If you don't just bend over & agree with the GM (Henry Potts) then you'll be history. No one is big enough to challenge him.
It's a very politically orientated work place, where PLD's are continually pitched against other. One day you are on the golden list, next day on the hit list.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet some personal management skills. The people are the most valuable asset to this company/division.

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