    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The vision is consistently grand -- revolutionize entertainment technology again and again. Very smart people in nearly all functions and levels.

    Cons

    The mission is so broad it is difficult to focus. Acquisitions and size (1200+) make it more difficult to stand out as an individual.

    Advice to Management

    Assign dedicated engineering resources on market segments so that individuals develop a personal alignment with customers in their respective markets.

    "5 CIOs in 5 years tells ya something"

    Current Employee - IT Manager in San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - IT Manager in San Francisco, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great company. The rest of the buisness is doing a great job. The IT shop hasn't gotten on board.

    Cons

    5 CIOs in 5 years makes for an IT organization with no direction. Those flying under the radar can make life challenging for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Become more like the rest of the business. Celebrate success, work hard and have fun. Work hard and work hard and outsource is not such a good combo.
