Pros

They pay well, and promote the company as being a good place to work. Overall employees and contractors are treated with respect. I think some teams may have a good culture- its ALL about the manager.

Cons

Brocade management is out of date. They have a be-in-the office from 9-5 mentality, ineffective technology for employees, endless work cycles and nothing seems to change, silo-ed middle management.

Advice to Management

Get a little more synergy with your middle management. And perhaps look to HR to get a real picture of people's exit interviews. I think that staff wants to continue improving, but there is a gap in terms of corp goals and empowerment/execution.
