Approves of CEO

I have been working at Catalina full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Creative and intelligent people. Flexible schedules and nice facilities. Company hosts various employee appreciation events throughout the year. Covered parking.

Cons

Cultural challenges prohibit real transformational change. Executive management team has changed within the past 18 months and too many organizational changes have resulted in loss of critical systems knowledge. Morale is low, direction shifts frequently and employees feel undervalued. No real leaders, confidence in the C suite gets lower by the day.

Advice to Management

Pick a direction and commit to it. Give your people the tools to succeed and then get out of their way.

    I have been working at Catalina full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Truly visionary CEO in Jamie Egasti. He understands and is excellent in conveying the direction of the company and what we need to do to get there. A solid "people person" and captain of the ship.

    Cons

    Highly disorganized IT department. New CTO brought in many Directors and VPs that created duplicity at the management level. Too many managers with too much say. IT Micromanages to the point of atrophy. Stressful work environment. Value of incumbent staff is disregarded.

    Advice to Management

    The business and business direction of the company is spot-on. IT morale and performance is a serious issue that can adversely affect this company's ability to deliver in 2013.

    Pros

    Good people, the management does care about setting you up for success. There is a lot opportunity to develop new skills and marketing skills

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of vertical career moves available, there needs to be a better system for people to remain with the company as they gain more experience so they don't get bored or find more competitive salaries elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Develop career paths that tier the salary and responsibilities based on experience and performance reviews. The sales career path is developed well and the management path is getting better, but there a gap in development for those in product services and analytics.
