Inconsistent

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Fremont, CA

ProsGreat opportunity to learn how to deal with difficult people
The individual contributors are a joy to work with
Travel to third world contries in Asia -get to see cultures at their best
Pay is competitive

ConsCannot rely on the word of senior management
too many offices with doors - closing the door is common practice, where passive-aggressive battles are waged by management
Company values are written very vague, seemingly on purpose
Backstabbing by senior management to all levels of employees is the standard operating procedure
Poor communications by senior management with direct reports
Poor performance feedback system - employees hit with surprises at end of year
Devicive and vindictive managers toward technologists - bickering and infighting prevail
Not constructive confrontation, but passive, destructive confrontation from senior management

Advice to Senior Managementlearn the true meaning and value of these three words: honesty, integrity, honor
not the dictionary meaning, and not to use as devicive tools, but as a way of being.
Consider the impression given to customers - the are far more savvy then your realize.
This is the true path to the success that remains out of the grasp of the SI division.
Good luck - I know the heart of the Senior Staff is in the right place. It is mostly the directorship that does not understand.

to Steve: sorry about the low rating toward you as a leader, but it is your team, so...we must hold you to the same standard that your leadership team holds us.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
