    Pros

    Close to home and retail

    Cons

    The lack of ownership and responsibility managers take. Seen too many staff level employees become the victim of a managers blunder.

    Advice to Management

    Pursue a culture which seeks to problem solve first, not look for something to blame. Its pathetic.

    Pros

    Innovative and collaborative culture that offers a flexible work and office policy for telecommuters and knowledge workers and a decent work life balance.

    Cons

    Product line and market are getting old and the company needs to pursuer new revenue streams in order to compete in the market and grow the revenue base beyond its legacy products.

    Advice to Management

    Solidify a strategy to dominate in a particular market space and surround yourself with a team of people that can make it happen. Focus on results and team work.

    Pros

    Good life-work balance. Competitive benefits. Friendly and respectful people.

    Cons

    There is no product delivery behind the marketing. Marketing is misguided and not aligned with what they offer. All products are at least 10 to 15 yrs old. The Nortel clicks are getting formed again.


  7. 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

    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.
