    A good company to work for. Too many low-performing execs/managers though...

    Pros

    -- A nice and friendly work environment
    -- Good benefits and other facilities
    -- Reasonable pay
    -- Excellent learning opportunities and lots of cool technology

    Cons

    -- Many in management are pretty clueless.
    -- There is an overall lack of accountability.
    -- Lots of politics and favoritism, especially in the middle management layers.
    -- There seems to be an overall lack of strategy in many areas; decision making is often not quick and clear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please decide what you want to focus on, and execute on those decisions. Stop playing favorites and hold people accountable. Make decisions that are right for the business, and do not bend over backwards just to make some people happy.

    Pros

    it was a great company to start with. it paved the way for many new ideas and bring them to realiation inspiring million others. Now its lost within its success..

    Cons

    seems like the structure bloated way too much and the org lost its priority over a period of time. later Quality took a side seat too...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    go back to your roots. start afreah with concepts that are going to help people do things easily and not get thrust by the way you now want them to use technology
