    Good products and interesting work environment. Very bright people. Great benefits and good salaries. Good sized company (1100 employees world-wide) and ability to make a difference.

    Very much a "hurry up and wait" culture with tinges of bullying throughout the organization, especially in Human Resources.

    Please pay attention to employee surveys and follow-up on feedback immediately if inappropriate behavior and bullying is reported in any area.

    Stock price, lack of market share growth, pay could be a little better, too many opinions from mid-upper management can slow processes,
