Pros

Everything that is non-work: of course, the people, fitness center, health care university, flexibility, and large company type benefits and competitive compensation. Good cafe (27) with variety and nutrition. On site medical a plus with a great staff. Public Company with espp and T Rowe 401K.

Cons

not a progressive environment, no room for growth, limited resources for most projects. After many years of this, even the talented people (there are a lot) are burnt out. No daycare or paternity.
True understanding of business and customer lost with a majority of offshore or contract resources.

Advice to Management

Rather than give generic 'power talks' that could apply to any company, use real examples of how we are improving customer relationships and sales. Hire more employees to get to know the customer and bring that information back to engineering who develops new products that customers will actually buy. The Advanced Concepts group needs to take their innovative intellect and bring a product to market rather than stay in extended-Post Doctorate land. Senior Management should most importantly be leaders. Leadership is not management but retaining the people that you do have thru creative motivation, mentoring, and rewarding. Also, training of project managers to think outside the box. Scheduling not only their project tasks but all the dependencies outside the project that impact a date. Goals that are properly scoped with dates that are achievable. Bring back CPR for commication more regular.

    Pros

    Opportunities within the company to advance to other departments. Company offers two weeks vacation and the option to purchase flex days (additional vacation days) good benefits.

    Cons

    The company is still using Lotus notes not very technology driven. Outside sales is required to use their own cell phone to manage their outside sales calls. Sales tools to manage territory is inefficient and counterproductive. Processing orders is very challenging and time consuming.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. If you say your company is technology driven then support your statement by having the technology for your employees to use and be successful. Invest in Microsoft outlook....your a 20008 company using 1980 technology....
