    Was a great company, however ego and short sighted thinking have brought it short of its potential

    I have been working at Xyratex full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Some managers provide great support.

    Cons

    Management has trouble getting out of its own way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look beyond your ego. Plan to be a legacy company not a flash in a pan. Should have spent more time and money raising the bar internally than on lowering it on the logo.
