Pros

Good pay, benefits, IT and facilities teams

Cons

No career growth
Advancement apparently not knowledge or merit- based (favoritism)
Frequent drastic change in company direction
Layoffs also frequent, but lots of underperformers remain (favoritism)

Advice to Management

Learn about technology since you are managing technical people
Be honest and fair
Learn something about project management (not micro-management)
Give credit where it is due
Focus on values, not slogans and buzzwords

    Pros

    - plenty of smart and talented people and some good underlying technology
    - some good young talent that really wants to win and works hard.

    Cons

    Where does one begin? The core problem has finally been addressed with the recent change at the top but the new CEO seems like he's been sent in to chop this thing up and get it sold. It's sad to see round after round of terminations because sales is in perpetual turnover mode and can never make it's numbers . Way too many good and talented people have fallen victim to MGT's attempt to dress up the bottom line by chopping heads.

    Advice to Management

    Either get the company sold ASAP or put in a CEO who truly does want to grow the company and isn't simply interested in another cost cutting exercise.
