    A once great company. Its acquisition was probably the best thing that could happen.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume. Great rank and file with a very high intelligence level and a lot of drive. Engineering staff at the contributor level is as good as it gets.

    Cons

    Pay and promotion have nothing to do with your achievement and contribution and are based on ones loyalty and servitude to your / upper management, whose motivation is based solely on their own advancement and power. Of course there is some level of that in "every" organization...at least at the location I was at for seven years, it is detrimental to the operations when the good ol' boys and girls network is the only way to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Larry taking over was probably the best thing that could have happened, but a good thorough house cleaning from mid-level on up is in order.
