    Pros

    -Decent health insurance / benefits
    -Yearly bonus
    -work from home option in some areas
    -

    Cons

    Management gives pressure to innovate and share ideas and end up doing whatever the hell they want. Employees are not motivated correctly and they don't really want to know what your problems are, just make sure you get to work and work. All in all the benefits are the reason I don't leave but its tiresome to work for a company that's not very well organized and a bit hypocritical which is understandable based on IBM mgmt and being replaced w/chinese new generation mgmt... many managers promote the lower end employees to be able to get rid of them and hold back the good ones and won't allow progress.

    Advice to Management

    Take employees opinion and ideas more in consideration if you are asking for it. allos progress and career growth for all employees specially the good ones.

    Pros

    Positive work atmosphere, top notch colleagues. The company does a good job promoting their products from within. If you enjoy new product architecture or project management, there are opportunities.

    Cons

    Although Morrisville is promoted as the WWHQ, nearly all of the design work is done overseas. In the server group, most of the product qualification testing and technical staff have been eliminated. There does not appear to be much of a future there.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the managers and staff to participate in budget discussions that affect their work and career. The decision-makers are too far removed from the process. Some recent cuts could have been avoided with better planning.

    People (including management) willing to take risks to drive business results, everybody focused on same goals, directly see results of your work

    Pros

    Overall business growth. People are passionate and optimistic. We make great products and there is a real focus on improving the culture...which is good already.

    Cons

    Execs are enjoying being execs and are a bit out of touch with employees. Sometimes view employees as the key to their own career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Executive training. Business and Geo alignment should not be a bottoms up effort. Lack of exec alignment creates a strain on employees.

    Pros

    Good health benefits
    Good retirement and employer match

    Cons

    -Resource actions ongoing since November 2014: Contractor and Regular employees
    - All of that money spent on those buildings just to present an "illusion" when the actual reality is that those pretty buildings are virtual ghost towns
    - No product roadmap with absolutely no foreseeable future or direction of EBG
    - Don't give the "excuse" that EBG is in the process of restructuring when the number of vacant cubes outnumber the actual amount of employees still remaining between buildings 7 & 8

    Advice to Management

    Being honest with the employees about their foreseeable future from the beginning would have been great. The actual reality is that there is no future in EBG.
