    Multi-cultural, team-work oriented employees.
    Competitive pay and good work and life balance
    Ability to move to other departments and locations for career advencement

    Cons

    Corrupt management. John Roth and his entourage ruined the company.
    Grossly over paid for its acqusitions (anyone remember Bay Networks acqusition) at the height of the internet bubble. How can you appoint a corrupt CFO to a CEO position after John Roth left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire with the millions you stole from shareholders and employees and please do not manage another company. You guys ruined enough lifes.
