    Pros

    There is a small handful of staff that will act as real colleagues and collaborate.

    Cons

    Terrible management, that churns and burns staff. It is an employee unfriendly company and management is encourage to blame staff for short comings. Way too many mediocre people in management for too long and they are encouraged to abuse and fire staff. In essence, A CEO who thinks he is a basketball expert (he is not) with chaotic, incoherent product strategies and chaotic inconsistent acquisition logic. A poor reactive company. Avoid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    N/A they wouldn't listen let alone understand. Historically, this has always been a troubled company with massive discontent among the divisions.

    Pros

    The company seeks to recruit extremely intelligent, highly motivated team members and it shows. When you work with such talented people it forces you to raise your own standards for excellence.

    Cons

    Not for those who do not like to travel. Also there is a lot of different software to learn which requires continuous training and study.

    Pros

    The technical knowledge and sharing of the knowledge among the field people is great. Just send an email with a question and you will get at least 10 responses by the end of the day. The products are leading edge that cause companies such as IBM to duplicate the message/products.

    Cons

    The Club Awards for non-quota carrying people seem to be arbirtary based on how management feels that day. Management seems to make decisions without communicating to employees why the decision was made.
