Pros

Pay specifically for Directors and above was very good.

Cons

Works employees into the ground. Good ole boys club. No diversity. Unable to look beyond current quarterly reporting. Makes knee jerk decisions to make quarterly numbers with little regard for impact on future.

Advice to Management

Take more interest in giving back to the community & employees. Need to investigate inappropriate behavior by management towards female personnel.

    Pros

    1. Very relaxed environment with very less work stress and peer pressure. 2. Management very approachable and encouraging.

    Cons

    1. Management is very stubborn and most of the times very slow to change / bring great products to market fast. 2. Sr. Mgmt and Leadership is not receptive of radical changes, which lets other companies take it for a ride. 3. Outdated manufacturing and IT processes which lead to high costs and slow changes. 4. Mostly SDLC modified agile practices which does not work for the most part. 5. Not much enthusiasm at the employee level and not much sense of ownership.

    Advice to Management

    1. Be flexible and proactive to changes in the marketplace and try to bring changes in your teams. 2. Do not react to something after the fact, be proactive and have the market follow you. 3. Do not make another mistake like letting Nokia win you over even though they did not have any mobile IP. 4. Do not bring in high profile CEO's who knows nothing more than what you do and pay them exorbitant amount of money to suggest a simple mantra which most of the employees and you already knew at the time.
