Pros

Good business model. Initially granted ability to change, create, improve. Decent benefits and bonus program. Talented group of co-workers that would work long hours for the joy of creating quality work.

Cons

Drastic change in work environment over last few years. Tyrannical upper management. Lack of trust in the organization. All emphasis on negatives. Loyal employees no longer fit new organizational model.

Advice to Management

Pounding on a table during meetings is generally not a good motivational tool. Some positive reinforcement is a good thing. Take a good look at why morale is so bad at so many locations.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Very diversified products across different industries. Highly independent business units provide further diversity over management or business cycles. Great performance metrics to measure every aspects of groups and individuals.

    Cons

    There are still quite many less competent persons in different positions of the company. Many high quality people left in past several years because of poor stock performance and return.

    Advice to Management

    Need do better job to attract top notch talents. Make the compensation more competitive. A capable employee is worth several mediocre ones.

    Tunc did a great job!

    Pros

    I Learned a lot working here. My coworkers were awesome and very friendly. They were very smart, professional, and helpful too.

    Cons

    There were no getting to know your coworkers. Working was pretty lonely for the first few weeks. There were little, if any, people ages 18-25 working here.

    Advice to Management

    Feedback is always appreciated. The lunch was very nice for getting to know a few coworkers off the bat. Hire more people in the 18-25 range.
