Pros

Being able to work in Sonoma County is a pleasure, as it is a lovely area in which to live.
Technical abilities of coworkers and project engineers is outstanding

Cons

Layoff culture
Mismanagement of product lines and growth
Mismanagement of time to market
Problems with non-technical managers managing technical groups

Advice to Management

Please show some back bone and spin EMG off, and stop dragging it around and not adequately funding product development.
For technical positions, you cannot just manage by people principles. You have to understand what they do, and not just the concept. Management is more than just a Powerpoint slide presentation.

    Pros

    good salary
    good benefits
    flexible work hours
    smart coworkers
    challenging and varied types of work
    the company will pay education benefits

    Cons

    Not even sure where to begin on this...upper management is only worried about the stock price and seems to be enclosed and attentive to their own set of issues. This really hurts morale.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to realize that employees are people...not just numbers. Outsourcing to save a few extra dollars is not innovative. Laying off much of the U.S. workforce is very shortsighted and will weaken the company.

    Not recognized for work I performed above and beyond an Administrative Assistant. Couldn't get promoted or a job title change.

    Please recognize an Administrative Assistant's goals and performance to a higher level and promote her/him to reach their goal!
