    Pros

    cowboy club, great opportunities, liberty, flexibility and room to get things done. Great for engineers but also for sales & marketing.

    Cons

    more and more politics over the years. difficulties to get things done on a local level, more and more sign offs and signatures needed at Corp level for local stuff. Less room to get things done and make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what happens in the field and not only in the US, they’re the ones bringing in the money

  2.  

    A positive professional relationship with a dynamic company.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Dynamic technology with hardware, software and service delivery industry leading professionals. The corporation was generous to a fault with stock options and a regular bonus plan, you always felt wanted.

    Cons

    It was a pretty demanding environment that required a large time commit. It was a constant struggle to make sure the work-life balance was protected. The company demands could and did consume many employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on technology, but don't forget about the well-being of your employees.
