Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

coworkers helping each other out until the very end. No one giving up, fighting bravely for our customers and friends. Not willing to concede we are considered the dinosaurs and no U.S. Companies want to talk to Americans any more

Cons

Mid level managers afraid to stand up for their teams. They have been cowed into submission. Those who speak out against job outsourcing get axed from the payroll. Union representation, once strong, now non-existent.

Advice to Management

how many U.S. employees do you need to "keep on" to still be able to declare yourself an "American Company"? L.O.L.

    Former Employee - Professional Services in Singapore (Singapore)

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A ever changing environment that is always full of surprises (unexpected and not for the faint hearted nor weak in managing tough situations).

    Cons

    Uphill tasks in certain business areas, which they are extremely weak in. Live by the month or even weeks rather than quarter

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the obvious "dead wood" that is still floating and holding on to position of power across the globe. They are easy to spot....just have to take a firm stand.


  2. "tolerable- always looking elsewhere though"

    Current Employee - TAM
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    salary is decent. co-workers are up to par. the overall direction of the company is not positive and will most likely be bought out again vs ipo

    Cons

    support for customer base is poor- this hangs the sales force out to dry, but management does not see this

    Advice to Management

    there are too many bean counters, not enough beans. be less short sided and think long term with customer relationships.
