    Pros

    Great coworkers, good benefits, flexibility, work from home availablity

    Cons

    Without any warning, I was told my position was being eliminated due to restructuring with 2 weeks' notice. (Look up the history, this company is failing). I took a day off to process the loss of my career and upon my return, adding insult to injury, I was forced to train a replacement for my supposedly eliminated position. They are now once again hiring for that position at a 25% higher salary than I was earning. Every quarter, there were town hall meetings where we were told how great the company was doing and a week later, pink slips in every department.

    Advice to Management

    Value the people who know the ropes and stick through the nonsense and put in the blood, sweat and tears to bring the company back to life instead of lying and looking outside the company

    Pros

    My company acquired Dialogic. It was a boards company trying to make the change to a software company. The integration went pretty smoothly. We spent the appropriate time merging processes, tools, etc.

    Cons

    Upper mgmt at the time had a hard time picking a direction and executing. The move from being a hardware board manufacturer to softswitch vendor was painful.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction and stick to it. Don't get caught up in location when making decisions. Base them on abilities of the teams.
