    Pros

    Work Life Balance and reasonable working culture

    Cons

    Lack of challenge, excitement and of cause, fun

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many layers, too many hopeless managers in every layer of the brick wall. Lack of mechanism to identify, use and retain true technical talent. Overall, it is hopeless.

    Pros

    Benefits, stock options, opportunity for career advancement training, fitness club allowance, car allowance

    Cons

    a management merry-go-round, or perhaps more like musical chairs, annual review process is a joke..... managers often make up the numbers then complete the review to meet the various quotas for how many employees can be rated at the various levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan and get your act together..... too many false starts and conflicts... "we are selling this business unit.... no we are not it is strategic..... now we are no longer selling this product with a direct sales force"......... let's create a new sales district....one month later,.... sorry that won't work.....
