Roller coaster ride of mis-management, RIFs and disappointments

QA Manager (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsIn today's market the benefits, are very good.

ConsRevolving door CEO, no direction, company is an ATM machine for the Chairman of the Board.

Acting CEO is an autocrat.

Management has now view down into what the company is really doing.

Employees are fodder, and are expendable.

No new products in ages.

HR is out to screw employees.

Under-market salaries.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemove head from anus, listen to your employees. Ship a new product!!!

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