I have been working at Genesys full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Work - life balance is very good
Culture and spirit is very high since split from ALU
Greater communication across the organization (tho still needs work)
leader in the market -always striving for better but nice to work from a place of strength

Cons

No options, etc - not good for a Silicon Valley company striving to become "iconic"
No real advancement opportunities - not good for a Silicon Valley company striving to become "iconic"
Perhaps HQ is a better place than other locations - need to work on bringing the geographies closer
Daly City is not a pleasant place to work - offices are ok; but the neighborhood, amenities and weather aren't

Advice to Management

Look closer at what is happening internally
Put more than lip service to the goal of becoming iconic; especially wrt employees rather than product

    Pros

    Great technology; reputation in the market; smart people; travel opportunities.

    Cons

    Lower than average pay; interference from Alcatel-Lucent (though Genesys was recently sold to a private equity firm). Carear advancement ignores until resignation letter submitted.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure employees understand the long-term game plan. Provide clear overview of who competitors are, what makes Genesys unique, and provide more collaboration opportunities with sales.
