    My experience was very positive, largely due to the VP I reported to while I worked there.

    Pros

    People are friendly.
    Close to Starbucks.

    Cons

    Slow in doing things.
    Too much politics.
    If you enjoy working for an old company (technology and infrastructure) this is the place.
    Working on Layer 1 is boring and the chance for you to get a better job elsewhere is small.

    Advice to Management

    No advice needed they know what need to be done but will they ?.

    Pros

    A lot of talented people still here. Enjoyable to work with. Interesting technology.

    Cons

    Dedicated effort by upper management to out-source and off-shore everything. Brutal s/w delivery schedules. Layoffs routine. No effort to recruit/hire new/young people. No one knows where anything is headed. Most people are looking for the exits.

    Advice to Management

    You're building an environment with no discernible future for any of your employees.

    Pros

    friendly environment, onsite cafeteria, onsite temp agency manager, most supervisors work well with employees. The work place is clean and tidy. a very nice working environment.

    Cons

    employees don't advance in position to often, temps are kept for extremely long period of time without being hired in or given the opportunity to be hired in. Raises are rare and when given it is usually small and rarely make a difference on the employees paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize Talk to Power, hire the temps in as full time employees. Have better raises and give raises on at least a yearly bases.

  7. Good company to work for with a reputable history in telecommunications.

    Pros

    Executive leadership is taking real steps towards improvement. Relaxed atmosphere in the work place, and a balanced work/life approach. Many employees have been there for decades, so retention is very good.

    Cons

    Many employees have been there for decades, so change is difficult to come by sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Would like to see a younger office culture, more professional dress, and programs to help employee career growth.

    good compensation package and flexible

    Cons

    aside from decent compensation, there is absolutely nothing good about this company. leadership at director / VP and above know nothing to run business. they try to constantly change directions and thee is no vision. extremely low moral.

    Rebuild leadership levels from Director , VP to top executives.

    Pros

    The Salaries are decent, and most of the people are friendly
    Benefits could be a bit better, but could be a lot worse.

    Cons

    No corporate strategy whatsoever
    No new product in the pipeline
    S_L_O_W development times and cycles
    Hierarchical culture
    Dearth of training opportunities
    Slaves to SAP

    Advice to Management

    The reorg looked great on paper, but the culture is still largely the same. It's time to develop a strategy based on new technologies and stick with it. It's also time to reevaluate the benefit of owning manufacturing. Maybe contract manufacturing is the way to go.
