I have been working at Blue Coat Systems full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Restructuring, improving performance, great employees. The employees that still work here are awesome. I have made a lot of friends here and enjoy the people.

Cons

Poor management direction, lack of employee benefits (compared to before). The upper management doesn't seem to care about the future of the company, only the short term profit. They have removed a lot of the free drinks and food provided, eliminated the cafe area, made the gym smaller and have few events for the employees.

Advice to Management

Grow the company for long term success, relay those goals to the employees and provide a long term road map for the employees.
