Management is good until upper executive management where detrimental policies are made without concern

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

ProsGood benefits
Wide variety of work
Immediate management ok

Cons1. Accountants dominate how to save $$$ without any regard to the significant impact to product quality and employee morale. Employees can see that offshoring significant portions of new development work, reduction in force locally, does not save but increases costs in loss of productivity, missed deadlines, and overworked local employees.
2. Executives without a care to the impact mandate policies that compromise productivity and employee satisfaction. For example, IT division set out to save company $4 million by giving all employees the same laptop with same specs whether in business or a developer. Developers finally got more powerful laptops, but IT hampered cpu and memory with full disc encryption and monitoring software, etc. Developers had to choose being being out of compliance by secretly turning off the apps or getting work done and no execs cared about this impact, only about the stated $4 Million supposedly saved.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to realize that saving $$ on the accounting books does not always mean dollars really saved when application quality and productivity are significantly diminished.
Start listening to the employees in the trenches, you are destroying your products and employee morale.
