    I have been working at Blue Coat Systems full-time

    Pros

    - the technology, the staff who have stuck it out and continue to believe in the face of adversity
    - the installed base, great customers, opportunities for sales
    - salaries are competitive

    Cons

    - new directors/VPs being placed into strategic positions by firm who now own the company. These new big hires are former colleagues of the new execs.
    - constant air of concealment and rumours about more lay-offs, more budget cuts makes current staff extremely nervous and insecure.
    - many key people who once were corner-stone of the company have all gone.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that people are the foundations of the company you are trying to grow - if you forget them you will not succeed.

    Need to build trust again and ensure that staff believe in the new exec team. The values which once existed have disappeared
