Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Blue Coat Systems (More than a year)

Pros

You like chaos. You thrive on office politics. You hate competence. They pay well. Worked with talented people albeit direct co-workers were not among them.

Cons

A lot of nonsense on a daily basis. Constant interoffice politics and changes in direction based on who's connected to whom, not what's best for the customer.

Advice to Management

Hara kiri.

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

    Pros

    Good communication throughout the company. Recognition given for a job well done. Management encourages to leave your computer at home when you go on vacation.

    Cons

    Being a global company, sometimes you need to have calls at odd times but that seems to be the new normal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the employees. A happy employee is a productive employee.

    I worked at Blue Coat Systems as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Holiday Party at Xmas

    Cons

    Employees not friendly and don't even say Hi if pass you by in hall way or in elevator. Everyone just kept to themselves like they're afraid to socialize with anyone. Lots of politics and backstabbing. People are hired not based on their skill set but based on who they knew at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture and morale of the company.
