I worked at Savi Technology full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great sense of team, close knit family. 25 years of history. Company has been going through tough transition, which included closing Mt. View office and moving outside of Lockheed. Both moves were long overdue, but sometimes change is hard.

I recently left Savi but hold it in high regard.

Cons

residual impact of employees or ex employees who were stuck in the past.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

See it through! Maybe look at a more regular process for employee communications.

    I worked at Savi Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There was and still is some great technology this company has to offer and if / when a cohesive strategy is put in place to sell it again - it may well be a good company to work for...

    Cons

    Bills, Bills, Bills... Not only the ones we're struggling to pay, but the ones running the show.

    Shifting the entire knowledge base from Singapore to India to the US and then again within the US... It didn't work well the first time; the second time worked as well as the first and guess what... third time wasn't lucky.

    The vast majority of the talent has now been let go, fired or left of their own volition...

    Will it be the Phoenix from the flames under new ownership?

    Advice to management....? that's a funny one! They can't see what's in front of their noses and act on it. They certainly aren't going to listen to anything written here.

    Used to be a great company to work for, now it's "just a paycheck"

    I have been working at Savi Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Used to be a good company that would treat employees decently under old management. That's about it. While it was fun, now it's just a sad place to be.

    Cons

    Most people learn from their mistakes. Clearly, this company doesn't. The company moves resources around the globe as much as some people change their socks, and has tried to jump into every new market they could think of, with products that aren't mature, or don't work right.

    Management feels 30-60 days is more than enough time to transition an entire engineering team, and ALL product knowledge to a brand new team.

    This used to be a good company to work for, now it's not. Don't put a sales exec in charge of a tech company, they just don't get it. Management is the sole reason this company is in decline, they don't get it.

    Employee moral has been rock bottom for the last two years. I suppose that's what happens when you have a RIF every few months. Only decent thing left here is a pay check.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, and learn from your mistakes. Anyone with a GED could tell you that trying to move 10+ years of experience with any product to a team that receives 2 months of training is the worst decision you could ever make. And you made it twice?
