    Pros

    Good honest workers generally don't have the skills or disposition for functioning in a highly political environment like Xyratex. Xyratex is a highly political and an unpleasant place to work, making it more difficult to recruit good talent to compete effectively. The company usually buys the talent or expertise it doesn't have inside from the outside; keeps them around long enough to allow knowledge transfer to those who need it; and then throws them out during frequent lay-off cycles. Lots of people who have worked at Xyratex feel discriminated against, abused or unappreciated and often resort following harmful options: Defecting to competition; resorting to sabotaging the company, e.g., by sharing confidential information with competitors or the analysts; becoming emotionally distant and with no interest in the success of the company; and displaying passive-aggressive behaviors, becoming uncooperative, working less or producing substandard results . Key talent frequently quit or are fired from the company

    Cons

    A low performing dysfunctional company where most senior management are driven by their own personal agendas.

    Too many recruitments, selections and promotions are based on internal political agenda, for example, hiring mediocre friends to guarantee personal loyalty at the expense of other highly performing and more-qualified employees or promoting people to have them work as internal spies and saboteurs.

    Compensation is politically driven: Stock options, bonuses and perks are not fairly linked to performance.

    A lot of sleazy creeps work there. Argumentative and heated cross-divisions meetings with discussion and language focusing on point scoring and buck-passing rather than sharing responsibility and collaborating to solve the problem is the norm as is “every person for himself”.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look in the mirror. You have met the enemy, and he is you. You have lost the respect of your customers and competitors and former employees.
