Disapproves of CEO

I worked at RSA Security full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Nice facility and campus. On-site cafeteria.
Flexible work hours.
Ability to learn new technologies that helps you to add to your resume, which you will need to do because you'll eventually get laid off.

Cons

Parent company EMC is in constant layoff mode.
Non-publicized layoffs happen regularly, creating "fear of job loss" syndrome.
Very-cliquey work environment, if you don't belong to a clique you are ostracized and then laid off.

Advice to Management

Stop trying to re-invent the company, this became a yearly event.
Share roadmaps with employees.
Try to retain your workforce instead of flushing away some very smart people.

    I have been working at RSA Security full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits with with smart people who are friendly. Quarterly bonuses are a nice perk since a little extra always helps. Have company sponsored events which are always nice.

    Cons

    Our company was acquired by EMC/RSA. The company now has become driven by metrics. More concerned with hitting numbers than producing a quality product.

    Advice to Management

    Please review how projects are being run. Need to refocus effort towards building a quality product.
