Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Technically advanced, chanllenging job, lot of learn, relatively good pay and average benefits.

Cons

Burocratic, slow, inefficient company. People in higher management are not techincally compitant to run their function.

Advice to Management

Higher techinically compitant people in key leadership position who can earn respect of their team. More often than not, people in higher management are found far away from practical and real world. This in turn resulted in selection of technologies, strategies which have practically no probability of success for a given product / project.

    Pros

    It's a big company, so lots of opportunity to define your own role (or get lost)
    Salaries are good if you come in via a strong acquisition
    Slow and steady wins the race - if you're an average performer, you'll be rewarded for longevity and consistency

    Cons

    Anyone outside of the division's home office tends to be forgotten
    In a company that grows by acquistion, the most recently acquired people will always be favored
    Not sure how to reward innovation or enthusiasm, or anyone who doesn't quite fit the mold

    Advice to Management

    Strategies should last beyond the next acquisition

  2. Nice work /life balance

    Pros

    nice work, live balance... Stress level is low and good corporate environment

    Cons

    Some the benefits are little outdated. specially the tuition reimbursement which would not cover the tuition of one course or two courses year long for a moderate public university

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your assets
