    Pros

    Reasonable compensation, flexible working environment, focus is on higher growth product areas in the telecom space, ongoing difficulties have fostered good employee camaraderie. Decent customer footprint.

    Cons

    No strategy or vision, management tends to be reactionary and tactical in their decision making. Questionable and public lack of confidence in new CEO. Very risk averse and incestuous culture. Environment does not reward risk takers or those who challenge the status quo...future highly unstable.

    Advice to Management

    Be bold, get a strategy and commit to it. Sell a vision to our customers and the marketplace to help build back any credibility. Bring in outsiders to garner new perspectives. Invest and move away from the "shrink our way to prosperity" mode.


  2. Good place to work in the old days

    Too many layoffs, no incentive to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Sad morale, too many lay-offs, too many products cancelled, no one wants to stay.
