no wonder it went under - senior mgmt was overly impressed with themselves

Information Security Technologist (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

Proslarge, easy to hide and do nothing - paid large salaries to senior techs and managers - no formal performance review process

Consno advancement - incredible lack of technical innovation - large company so management loved to assume a "bully" attitude toward employees, partners, vendors - complete strategy, architecture and management by "PowerPoint". never saw formal documentation

Advice to Senior Managementdoesn't really matter at this point - company drove itself in to the ground and threw out the employees like garbage

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
