Pros

Great work environment. Friendly, professional people. Great work/life balance.

Cons

Benefits sagged over the last few years. Upper management cares more about the bottom line than their employees. Offshoring is more than just a trend with them - it's a mainstay. Beware.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offshoring isn't always the best solution.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Work culture is laid back and easy going. It's easy to find "genuine good people" here that are very successful Most people maintain a decent work / life balance. Managers are intelligent and lobby hard for their employees.

    Cons

    Company morale is at a low with constant talks of the next layoff. Internal processes are tedious and time consuming. The company has different silos with each interested in protecting only their best interest and not what's best for the company. Little communication on performance and how employees are faring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the economy down turn, Senior Management does not seem to have a new direction set in place on how to ride through the tough times except to do business as usual. There are no new strategies to alleviate customer budget cuts and low sales. Fix the broken products.

    Pros

    Work life balances very well. Most employees are pretty friendly and out going. Most manager will allow sick days to go unreported especially for top producers or brown nosers. There are free snack and drinks which a huge plus.

    Cons

    Upper management is not interested in promoting, advancing or recognizing employees and so it trickles down to middle management. Request for training is usually rejected and non-existing in some cases. Most manager perfer to "squeeze" emplyees into quiting before firing them. There is also very little communication as far as how employees are doing, what they need to improve and what is expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to employee needs and provide some direction. Showing financial numbers during a company meeting is great but there needs to be more input about the future of the company in reference to competitors who are bigger players in the market.
