    Pros

    Good work environment. Many work activities that all were very encouraged to participate in. Flexible schedule

    Cons

    Management was too segmented. Little visibility down to my level on overall strategy. Work-life balance was hard for many, we ate at our desks often

    Pros

    Good technical work. You get to work with some really smart engineers. Company culture is also great.

    Cons

    Past couple years, higher management has dropped the ball on various occasions. Mainly, they have been unable to forsee some trends in the storage industry, which has led to lost revenue recently. There has also been a problem in executing to plan for bringing key products to market on time. Also, the sales staff is not up to the mark with their knowledge of the portfolio and how to sell it affectively.

    Advice to Management

    Get your flash story straightened out. If AFF is the future, don't be afraid to cut flashray. We have too many products that confuse the picture. Just remember "simple" is one of our company objectives.
