    Pros

    Flexible working environment, pay is not the best but it is competitive

    Cons

    Poor job security - too many RIF's, stock price had been low for years, hard to move up/around within the company...easy to get stuck

    Advice to Management

    Stop reorging every few months. try to focus more on core competencies instead of spreading too thin. focus on what we are good at and keep the focus. Need to either grow up or have some adult supervision with senior leadership. It's like you are kids in a candy shop...oh look it's Sunrays and Secure Global Desktop, no look it's Solaris 10 on x64, no wait, it's MySQL...oops, wrong again, it's actually Black Box and Eco responsibility.


  2. Great place to work if you can deal with the stock price.
