    Pros

    The BoD know how to make money. Acquisitions are keeping the company alive.

    Cons

    Cliques. Not what you know, it is who you know. Do whatever it takes to make the quarterly number.

    Advice to Management

    Listen.

    Pros

    Great company, aggressive growth in the market. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Somewhat overstaffed at the Director level. Too many Chiefs not enough Indians! Some departments are overstaffed as well - i.e. HR, IT, Finance. Lots of people doing the same stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the little people. We are below the Directors but above the mice. We matter too -communicate better with us!

    Pros

    CEO and Chairman are visionary and are making all the right moves to bring in talent and (re-)grow the company.

    Cons

    Benefits need attention if we are to attract and retain key people. Salaries and benefits are below par. 401k program is especially weak and needs fixing to be more employee friendly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on attracting and maintaining talented employees, take care of them and pay them well and they will do anything you can dream up.
