    Great potential for growth,, bureaucracy stifles speed of execution

    Director, (Current Employee)
    Raleigh, NC

    ProsGlobal company even if poor global implementation
    Good people
    Vision, mission, strategy are good, CEO good

    ConsThe BU silos are still far too strong, makes it difficult to serve customers
    Far too many titled mgrs with limited accountability
    Senior managers are not listening as well as in the past as company has gotten so large

    Advice to Senior ManagementFewer strategists, more doers,reduce management overlap in field and BU's, etc get IT systems that work better, listen to field people, stop changing org dramatically every year

    Great Culture, Great people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company has a great culture that is focused on employee development, feedback, and really does place a value on workplace flexibility. Managers try to do the right thing, and employees are dedicated to their work.

    ConsThe senior leadership team makes changes constantly without allowing time for the changes to take place and assessing what worked/what didn't work. Change is good if done for the right reason, but constant change creates a great deal of uncertainty with employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to assess the latest changes made before implementing new ones.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Network engineer

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    North Andover, MA

    ProsPeople, benefits are ok, opportunities. Company does not have a real hard charger attitude, so work can be somewhat relaxing.

    ConsSalary is average. Since company is not really hard charging, they will never own the market, or be best in class. A good, solid, second.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuality really does matter!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
