    Pros

    TANDBERG had great benefits and bonus structure. Leadership was generous with bonuses based on company performance.

    Cons

    Competition among colleagues is encouraged leading to an environment that was less than friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that TANDBERG has been absorbed into Cisco, there is no point is giving any advice to management.

    I have been working at TANDBERG

    Pros

    Great place to work if you are interested in work/life balance. The company sells videoconferencing so employees ( depending on manager approval) can work from home. Free lunch in Reston and Oslo offices. Average age early thirties.International crowd in you work in the headquarter offices

    Cons

    very few opportunities for growth, salary below average. People are not particularly bright ( after all you don't need a master to work for TANDBERG USA), so not many opportunities for learning new methods or management.
    Good positions are only given to Norwegians.
    Marketing department has very bad management, a lot of micromanagement. Beware of any job in product marketing or global marketing as managers are terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch the company culture. As the company grows the original culture ( specially in the US) has faded. People are viewed as disposable talent

    Pros

    Passion, focus, fun and results-orientated

    Cons

    The challenge for Tandberg was to survive in consolidated world they needed to be acquired. The acquisition meant many of the unique parts of Tandberg culture disappeared and were replaced by large MNC-culture, instead of start-up passionate mindset

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more guidance to staff on assimilation post-acquisition
