Pros

Large company with decent benefits. Very nice campus.

Cons

Company is outsourcing and offshoreing many jobs. They also want to move as many IT positions from Costa Mesa to Texas. No job is safe at this company. Company has also gone through many lay offs.

Advice to Management

Management keeps saying they appreciate and care for the employees, but their actions do not back that up. If you advertise it, then follow through.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Friendly and hard working employees-which helps as documentation on processes is outdated or nonexistent
    Diversity of cultures
    HR is caring but cannot contol some upper management nonuse of good practices such as performance reviews and rewarding top performing individuals

    Cons

    Furlough instituted,401k matches frozen, raises minimal 2009 into 2010
    Layoffs frequent, include top talent, not based on performance but on
    company focuses on short term financial wins or ebit goals and not on long term system efficiencies
    work computers hard to get repaired and internal system rolled out improperly and archaic old tools - bad form for a company who wants to be known for technology

    Advice to Management

    question costa mesa for upper management and primary US support - it contradicts hiring employees in Chile for budget improvements

    Pros

    Comparitively stable for inside sales respectively, but boring, no career path. Surrounded by a bunch of underperformers who somehow keep their jobs year after year, when they base thier numbers on blue birds every other year.

    Cons

    Surrounded by a bunch of people who only call themselves sales people by title alone. They tend to make their numbers via the blue bird every other year. Then wait a year, to make their number again. Very rare to even make 100k a year.

    Advice to Management

    Start all over, from the top down. Build in career paths, get rid of the bottom 10% each quarter, give A.E.'s more products to sell. Make it more attracitve place to work by making it more competitive, increase their earning potential, and show upwad mobility.
