Approves of CEO

Pros

Great place for work/life balance. Relaxed environment with many opportunities. Ability to do your job without micromanagement. Highly recommended company.

Cons

Favoritism within some departments for promotions. Some management are not leaders and do not know how to help employees advance their careers, again in specific departments not the entire company.

Advice to Management

Do not choose people for positions based on favoritism. Take training and leadership courses on how to assist employees in career advancement.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of interesting technology and challenging projects to work on. Dedicated and knowledgeable individual contributors and first line managers.

    Cons

    Too many directors and VP's, most of whom are too concerned with agreeing with and keeping their bosses happy than with making real progress. Too slow to make necessary changes, such as getting rid of Councils/Boards structure, eliminating redundant products, and stepping away from product areas (consumer) where they are incapable of succeeding.

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision on what to do about Linksys and Scientific Atlanta product lines. Get a new CEO. Replace most of the Board of Directors.
