    Poor Company -- Lost with No Direction

    Pros

    The rank and file people are great to work with. The compensation is average and benefits are above average for the area

    Cons

    There is no positive direction here. There have been many layoffs and people left are severely overworked. The company is now selling "product suites" which simply are vaporware - they do not exist. New CEO is only interested in sales and bottom line so products are poor quality. Morale is horrible. No salary increases for 3 years and counting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have good people working for you who want to make a difference. Stop abusing this good will as everyone is looking for new opportunities. There are other things which are as important as sales and quality is one of them. Your "Quality Initiative" is just lip service -- fix it or continue to pay the price.
