    Good company to work for if you want to truly understand how the Corporate America environment works.

    Various Accounting and Operations (Former Employee)
    Irving, TX

    ProsAbove average benefits, some departments have good managers

    ConsExtremely political, inefficient back office processes

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the (non-management) employee ideas, and frustrations more in order to implement positive changes for both employee morale and customer service. Sales can bring in customer's all day long, but if you aren't following through the entire customer experience on the same page (from sales to corporate back office support), the customer will go elsewhere next time as well as present negative comments to other potential customers when discussing their experience with the company.

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

    Excellent Company overall, refocusing on short term

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCustomer-centric atitude, engineering driven. Have the werewithal to acquire and keep new customers and markets if the business case is there.

    ConsUntil recently, US was a stopping point on the road to greatness in Tokyo. Also, US market is small fraction of global sales, resulting in lagging product when redesign is needed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay the course.

    Overall, good company culture

    Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
    Palo Alto, CA

    ProsGood company culture. Decent employee benefits. Potential to grow within the company is higher than others I would think. I got promoted twice in the same department.

    ConsWeak sales. They don't bring enough clients for us to work on. They don't have enough professional training systems established except HR training.

    ProsMany very dedicated employees who work hard to help the company succeed.
    The work environment is friendly. In general, colleagues are helpful and supportive.
