Disapproves of CEO

I worked at GENBAND full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Pay was very good but that was carried over from Nortel
Great working level people

Cons

Moved from a 400 to 2200 employee company but did not change many of the processes so logic was to go figure it out yourself.
Work load was crazy with 70+ hour work weeks and was getting worse
Could not move the Network Transformation past the Tier 3 market with little competition

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and take action from the most experienced and not on market trends
Try "Undercover Boss"

    I worked at GENBAND full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    fitness room in Plano & Frisco, finance has monthly fajita lunch, day off for community service, some great people at the lower levels

    Cons

    no value for individuals, mgmt as a whole lack people skills and decision-making ability, revolving door for workers-good people keep leaving, too many consultants, spending goes unchecked

    Advice to Management

    Focus on getting financially healthier and not just bigger. Curb the spending and compensate your employees based on the co size and market. Flatten the organization-too many layers.
