    Pros

    Management gives adequate time to learn. No pressure. Competitive salary.

    Cons

    Upper management does not have foresight to see in future. More upper level management head count then engineers who do work. Lots of staff members with higher pay but not much technical background. Staff members are not helpful.

    Advice to Management

    They are always behind in technology innovation.

    Pros

    At the working level there is fabulous teamwork, collaboration and support. The benefits are good. The first level managers care about the working level.

    Cons

    The company mission and vision change every year. The purpose of the business is not enduring. The senior management team does not invest in the people or the company. Revenue has fallen by 15% per year for the last four years and the Pres/CEO has not been held accountable for the deterioration of the company yet the BOD continues to reward him with outrageous bonuses and incentives while salaries for everyone else are frozen at 2007 levels. The profits went to the BOD and COMVERSE rather than being reinvested in the future of the company. This management team would not know innovation if it hit them square between the eyes. Education and training were eliminated when revenue began to drop. The senior management team's management practice is micromanagement. They do not trust people so they direct their actions rather than delegating and empowering them. Consequently people are afraid to take initiative for fear they will be told their choice was wrong. Failure and unwanted results are punished. The Pres/CEO bullies his immediate reports into doing as he wants rather than relying on them to provide guidance and counsel.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the employees, allow them to make mistakes and learn from them, develop a five year plan and stay committed to it. Otherwise step aside and let the company succeed.
