    Metrics hell causes massive stress.

    Technology Consultant (Former Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsGreat people, intelligent products, good reputation on certain products - not so much on others. Great presence in India but that is going to bite back should the instability in that region fall through. Green and work from home for certain positions are a great benefit.

    ConsMicrometric-centric, FTS model is a joke. Top level management not in touch with much more than metrics, educational support very limited, very political per advancement and based more on metrics than people skills among others, salaries seem low in comparison to other companies, layoffs always looming to impose fear and the lower salaries. Mark Hurd taking that golden parachute ruined this company and current top mgmt is TOO diversified to run it economically/efficiently.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLoyalty to people over numbers is a must. Not all those that hit a rough spot in their life should be dispensable. Military contracts should be honored with a vengeance not thought of as a cash cow to be milked. Watch out for India based companies becoming security risks.

    It was a great ride, but...

    Sales and Alliance Management (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsWorked with incredible people on fascinating projects and programs. Compensation was fair. Good opportunities to work in a global environment in a variety of roles and functions.

    ConsShift from a "we" are in it together to an its all about "me" culture in the last 10+ years. Too many miss-hires at the senior and junior executive levels.Many individuals who were once motivated by passion or at a minimum by duty are now driven by fear. Weak management development and succession planning. Constant reorganizations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo real succession planning. Recreate a culture where you develop and promote from within. Trust people to make good decisions and give them the ability to do it.
