Pros

Great benefits, Ability to make your own day (as long as you're in by 9 and out by 5), Nice people.

Cons

Very hard to make quota because of dying market. Average age of the company is above 50 I would say. Upper management seems set in their ways and doesn't want to change. Hardly any young people. Low salary and almost impossible to hit the planned commission. Morale is really low and I don't know how they will get it back up.

Advice to Management

Get some youth in their! Get some products that people want! Make goals more realistic and reachable. Pay better. Stop laying off everyone!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I struggle to come up with a reason to work there now
    The pay and benefits are good; but, for how long?

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs
    Expensive place to live
    Sliding stock price
    No clear vision on growth
    Management says one thing but does another - Ex: We are done with layoffs, then there are layoffs
    Unwilling to spend money to develop products internally

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing broad cuts to reduce head count to match projected income.
    Understand the relation between development manpower and continued income.
    Instead of cutting heads, figure out how to reduce margin and drive growth.
