Pros

Most individual contributor co-workers are awesome to work with. They are helpful and supportive when providing help, and are appreciative and gracious when you help them.

Cons

There is a definite "old boys club" here. Only a privileged few get training or recognition, as there is a strong caste system in place. If you're not a suck up, you're treated like a cancer. Dare not present an opinion that is contrary to your manager's. It it's not his (or one of his pet's) idea, then it's a bad idea.

I thought things might get better with the acquisition by HP, but I was sorely disappointed. There is no investment in the employee, betraying a total disregard for the employee. The individual contributor is just another nameless part number that can be discarded replaced at will by management.

Advice to Management

Start paying attention to individual contributor morale, or you'll constantly be spinning your wheels bringing replacements up to speed.

    Pros

    Some of the people are really sharp.

    Cons

    Management is very poor. Constant fire fighting. Founders need to be pushed out and company needs to replace with talented execs.

    Advice to Management

    If you want success for the company either learn to lead or step aside.
