Approves of CEO

Pros

People are friendly.
Atmosphere is generally good.
Processes are good.
Employer has a good health plan and goes above and beyond for people with health issues.

Cons

Most of the growth seems to be in India
Management focus is divided between Mountain View and India and centers mostly on India
Feels understaffed after the layoff with some voluntary turnover after the layoff.
Okay for hardware, not a great place to work for software.

Advice to Management

Need to get a better buy-in from employees to work with India because employees see it as nickel and dime cost cutting and not a good long term approach. Need better incentives to keep good software engineers because even though the economy is down, hiring for programmers has increased.
