Company is going downhill

Network Engineer (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

ProsI could bring my dogs to work. Most of the people with whom I worked on a daily basis were great people.

ConsToo much middle and upper management, far too many Vice Presidents.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere seemed to be too much focus on advancing to the VP level and far too many new hires were brought in as VPs creating a "too many chiefs" atmosphere.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
