Pros

Great Products, Good Benefits and Generally good people. Attitude to flexible working is great and the company is well lead at a Senior (IE US ) level .

Cons

Dont expect middle managers to support You , they are all driving spreadsheets and Focusing on the "Number " , not though at all is given to Sales Strategy, developing the business and how to achieve Business Objectives. Just Go Do it is the Mantra . Expect to be reorganised every six months with the associated Politics and Upheaval . Good people leave through sheer exhaustion whilst the dead wood remains

Advice to Management

Take a step back and understand what the business needs to grow and achieve its aims . Above all listen to the people who work for you , they know everything that needs to be fixed and how to do it efficiently. Stop wasting millions of dollars on pointless initiatives, whilst penny pinching at a trivial level EG Making people pay for the Coffee Machine (At that point I knew it was time to go ) . This is a great company , so start behaving professionally and make it better

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Some of the best and brightest people you will come across.

    Cons

    VP's are slow to make decisions and not aggressive enough in changing the business model.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the opex now to put the company in a better position to succeed. Spin off the Consumer business to allow it and the other segments to succeed.


  2. "Awesome place to work"
