Cons

- Elementary school environment
- Decision are based on nepotism & emotion
- Professionalism -- doesn't exist
- Free lunch (it's to keep you from leaving the building)

Advice to Management

Grow up...you went public and it's a real business now so you need to make some tough decisions about your quirky leadership team. Yes, they helped you get to the current level of success, but that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement.

You're not Google or Facebook...put the toys away and get people working when it needs to be done, not when they feel like it. Contrary to your belief, this doesn't breed innovation it's breeds contempt becasue only the boss' favorites are given the option to show up when they want.

    Pros

    -Free food
    -Peers and employees in other groups generally very helpful
    -Possibility of learning about how a nation-wide network operates
    -Benefits were pretty decent, similar to other tech companies

    Cons

    -NOC management selected due to personal relationships with upper management
    -All management has no actual training or much in the way of management ability
    -No real opportunities for growth or movement within the company
    -Caste-based system rewards those who are cronies of management
    -One mistake for non-friend of management will result in termination, no so if you're in with the boss

    Advice to Management

    Try to grow up and run a publicly-traded corporation like a business, not like high school. Dividing your employees into the 'cool kids' and the 'non-cool kids' is an excellent way to decrease morale and lower overall corporate performance. Of course, the stock price reflects that lately...
