    Pros

    There is a Team feeling, Company wide. There is great teamwork across departments.

    Cons

    The company tends to have lay offs on a regular basis. They also are growing rapidly and there are some growing pains associated with this.

    Pros

    Following the Nortel aquisition, the company has morphed its identity and roadmap to be relevant in the market. Current momentum with new strategy and partnerships like Samsung are validating the new vision. CEO is very honest and upfront on industry trends, company progress and implications. The company's focus on employees and philanthropy makes it different than most.

    Cons

    Turbulent times over the past few years as the company absorbed the Nortel division and determined direction in changing market. Seems like leadership has handled with momentum building - bonuses paid to employees in Q1 a great sign!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the employees and keep the momentum going.

  3. The team is focused on NGN and getting positive results globally with new major wins. Nothing should stop us!

    Pros

    New "Making Networks Smarter" vision is resonating with customers and prospects. New products will take the company to new heights with new partners and new markets. CEO's vision and leadership has taken GB from nothing to a industry leader. Perspectives13 customer event was First Class event for customer, partners, industry and financial analysts. Customers loved the message from the top of GENBAND.

    Cons

    You can easily do GENBAND 24/7 if you'd like but it's not demanded or required for you to be a success. The start-up mentality still lives on in a 2200 person organization which is healthy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focused attention and investment on the next generation portfolio. We are on a roll with them and with new F5 and Samsung partnerships we have new ways of winning in wireless than ever before!

    Pros

    An amazing group of talented and knowledgeable professionals that really embrace collaboration on a global scale. People really do respect their coworkers here. Individuals and teams definitely get recognized for their contributions to the company. Also, over the past few years, the Global Day of Service, which the company coordinates with all employees across the globe, enables and encourages employees to give back to the communities and organizations in their areas. It's a truly awesome endeavor!

    Cons

    While the company is transitioning more a cloud service provider from a product organization, there is visible change that has occurred over the past year and a half. I can understand people feeling uncertain about the business environment, so it takes a certain mindset to focus on the company's goals and take the changes as they come in stride.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop the leadership skills of managers, and in effect, be open to employee feedback.

    Pros

    The work environment is great. The people are great. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved in the community and chances to get to know coworkers. Great family friendly environment.

    Cons

    It is hard to move up or around the Company at this time. I think they are working on creating work rotations from within but right now the turnover is higher than it needs to be do to the Company not giving opportunities for growth and advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Create better career paths. Need more internal job postings to allow smart and hard working individuals the opportunity for growth and advancement. You will have a more knowledgeable and committed workforce.

    Pros

    Innovation and growth are there! Genband is one of the fastest growing Telecom companies. People dedication is at its best. Management is usually very supportive of employee personal growth.

    Cons

    Compensation seems a bit on the low side for high performers. Training still is a pain to access. Time management of research projects sometimes deficient (i.e. either not enough time to complete or way too much)!

  9. GENBAND is a fast paced and exciting company to work for.

    Pros

    People, leadership, market position. GENBAND's focus on R&D drives new market opportunities and positions GENBAND to remain a leader in its segment.

    Cons

    Shrinking telecommunications market which keeps GENBAND in a consolidation vs, growth mode, competitors are plentiful in many of software and hardware products that GENBAND offers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find ways to outpace the competition
