Great Talent Wasted by CEO and his "insiders"

Sales (Former Employee)
Richardson, TX

I worked at Mavenir Systems full-time for more than a year

ProsCutting edge technology; bright people; good customers; window of opportunity in the marketplace to be successful.

ConsWhere do I start? CEO should have left a LONG time ago. He's better for a start-up -- not for sustaining a business. He's a dictator -- nothing get's done without him and he's flaky and emotional -- no employee knows the future or direction of the company because the CEO changes like the wind, and that 'wind' can blow really hard!! Small group of insiders that get to do what they want and treat people poorly with no ramifications. Pay is poor, and company financial position is such that none of the employees will benefit from stock when company is acquired or they go public (what a joke!!). External customer satisfaction is very low due to lack of investment in customer care and abandonment of older products.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the CEO, add structure to the executive suite, get rid of the head of marketing and business development, hire a real head of global sales, and beef up customer care.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Innovative company, growing rapidly

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Richardson, TX

I have been working at Mavenir Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGrowing very quickly, which allows for a lot of finance activities. There is a lot of advancement potential for employees. As a newly certified CPA, I have been able to learn a lot about the corporate environment and put my education to good use.

ConsDue to the fact that the company is small, there isn't a lot of formalize processes and procedures in place, especially regarding career advancement.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Unethical and Poor Management

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Richardson, TX

I have been working at Mavenir Systems full-time

ProsLeading technology in the wireless telecom industry; flexibility to work from home if necessary

ConsPoor Management; Poor work/life balance; Long hours with little to no appreciation from management. Some practices are pretty questionable and borderline unethical...will do things just to make the bottom line look good.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo the right thing...not just want YOU want to do.
