Approves of CEO

Pros

History of the company
Depth of engineering technical knowledge
Benefit program and salary scales are competitive

Cons

Transition to Google culture is "assumed" without any training or change management effort
Layoffs continue and no one is safe (except the Google folks, GMAP'ers, etc.)
Current team has to shoulder the burden of work of those laid off
Decisions are firm for a week (or less), then are iterated, leading to a lot of wasted effort

Advice to Management

Keep going forward with the strategy, but understand that Libertyvile and other "remote" outposts outside of Sunnyvale, are also crucial to the success of this venture.

    Pros

    Some very bright people. Great history. Google might still be savior.......

    Cons

    Unclear why Google bought Motorola. May have become to small and irrelevant to compete with Apple and Samsung. New Google people have much to learn. Likely to repeat past mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Get on with transition plan before consumers (and loyal customers) forget you.


  2. This company is lost and focused on the wrong things. It is only a matter of time before they become Google outright.

    Pros

    Given autonomy to produce what I thought were good initiatives when there was no leadership support. Great for my personal development.

    Cons

    Executive leadership not supportive. Processes and ease of use of basic employee tools are a huge hinderance. Culture is not defined. People are very unhappy here and there are too many "yes" people in leadership.

    Advice to Management

    They don't care and it is evident. Bring Tony Robbins in to get you all together working cohesively. Take a look at how unhappy the employees really are and do something.
