  1. "BEA Consulting Review"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good Product and Latest Technology in the application and services infrastructure space

    Cons

    The immediate management was running their own show with their own say and promoting their own few people. The Executives and Senior Management were not given true picture of what is happening in the lower ranks. I have seen 3 directors promoted to VP in last 5 yrs (2002-2007) in my group (Consulting) and consultants were made to do the same type of works year-after-year. It seems like the immediate management (Directors) were fighting the battle (meeting their revenue numbers and targets) but putting guns on Consultant shoulders. Anyways, now Oracle has acquired BEA, I can only pray that things improve but I see no hope for that as the same management (Director and VP) is being kept intact from consulting perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Take feedback from folks in the field and don't get blinded by the immediate subordinates (Directors and VP)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment that focuses on innovation and products that customers want.

    Cons

    The company is crippled by the Finance organization. There is no investment in infrastructure. The infrastructure is a disaster with tools and systems outdated and underfunded.

    Advice to Management

    Make an investment in the company.
