Not many Growth opportunities into mangement

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to improve interaction across teams. Got to utilise inhouse expertise in various fields. Currently each division/team seem to be on its own

    Pros

    Really great people to work with. I think it will be hard to find similar in future jobs (but hope I am wrong). Great culture and quality products.

    Cons

    It's very bureaucratic, and you are kind of locked into your pre-described skill set. Morale was low due to lots of lay offs in the last four or so years. Quality goes down as poeple have more and more to do with less resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even if your only value is the bottom line, if you boost morale with realy people care, your bottom line will also improve--even in this economy.

    Pros

    Nice office, people were decent, opportunities were okay, company is doing well and seems well positioned for long term growth.

    Cons

    Some of the management really doesn't seem to care about its employees, where they sort of treat you as expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the good employees more, especially if they are working harder than you are. Don't be afraid of offering praise.
