Pros

Any easy going place if you are one of the Gifford family. Chance to play with variety of mobile devices. A great place if you want to explore your laziness, ability to lie and general incompetence. Friday morning pastries are the one bright spot in the week. You may probably get a free phone when you start. If you are a biker or a golfer, you can easily come work here.

Cons

Absolutely incompetent management. Over 10 quarters of losses. Lot of employees with 'family' connections. There is no one single major bad thing apart from the inability of the management to execute effectively. All sales targets are missed every quarter with no corresponding changes in sales or in management. Upper management is either obsessed with biking or with golf. Don't expect to get paid top dollar for your efforts.

Advice to Management

Senior management has been in their position for a very long time and have taken steps for their own benefit rather than for the benefit of the company. Needs fresh blood.
