    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    People were very friendly. Very understanding of balancing life/work.

    Cons

    True talent wasn't always recognized. The "old team" always won out regardless if your ideas/methods/operation was at least recognizable as an alternative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep talent happy, and don't always side with the old guard

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay package and medical benefits are decent.
    Beautiful campus - Many places to hide especially when you are in stress caused by ineffective and inappropriate team dynamics (especially when you are running from your business unit and your Manager).

    Cons

    Politics, Politics, Politics - They groom you to be a back stabber at the end of the day.
    Management is caught up with just making money, they hardly recognize the real people that got the job done. Instead all promotions and laurels go to the wrong idiots.

    Advice to Management

    Know your people and try hiring "real Talent" for a change. (thus avoiding the typical "friend's friend need a job" model)
