    Pros

    Wonderful people below the CEO level make working there a delight but it will never succeed under current management.

    Cons

    There is no empowerment of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen. Don't walk into every room thinking you are the smartest guy around and have nothing to learn.

    I worked at Z Corp full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There were some very talented people where one could learn a lot from.

    Cons

    Unrealistic product management objectives and senior management could not make key decisions early in a product development cycle for "go" and especially "no-go". Could not retain talented employees that made a difference in a robust product. Human resource as a department was inadequate.

    I have been working at Z Corp

    Pros

    If you have good stuff to say they listen, though they may not act simply because its too hard. Its the coolest product around, unless you're into robots.

    Cons

    The operations team does not like change. Its had several opportunities to take feedback and do great things over the last 2 years but has not.
