Pros

Great working environment and benefits. People are treated well and with respect.
Contrary to some of the comments I think the senior management has done and is still doing a great job leading this company in the direction we need to go, in this extremely competitive industry, constantly looking ahead and shifting course/gear as needed.

Cons

Being a mature company some of us may be complacent?

Advice to Management

Allow innovation, innovation, innovation!

    Pros

    Great challenges working with some really smart people on software and products than impact literally millions of people

    Cons

    An ageist, cost cutting culture backed up by HR-by-rote, stack ranking with a forced curve and self congratulatory politics sucks the life out of you

    Advice to Management

    realize your best assets are your employees... give us a reason to stay (or return) and try to recover some of that fading glory before going the way of Lotus
