Approves of CEO

Pros

Vast opportunity to learn because of the diversity and complexity of our products for just about any industry /sector or business problem.
Multicultural environment, excellent rapport across teams.
Lateral career opportunities , relocation to a number of different countries and cities - can be awesome for someone who likes to travel.

Cons

Promotions (in Consulting) can take very long even if you have been doing very well , its just a near flat organization

Too much travel, constantly on the road.

The company sometimes seems too big and there is just too much information out there in the internal portal, It can exhaust you to look for simple things..

Advice to Management

Utilization numbers matter. But they dont improve customer satisfaction. Change your reward mechanisms away from utilization only.

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in La Crosse, WI
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of friendly and competent people to work with
    There are some interesting technical problems to solve (if you can get on one of those projects)
    The benefits are good.

    Cons

    Poor/hostile relations between teams on separate sites
    Too much reinventing the wheel - groups have no idea what tools, libraries, functionality have already been written in house
    Long process for using OSS (GPL not allowed) in projects
    Management does whatever it thinks best without asking employees
    Management is trying to do more with less employees and work-life balance suffers
    Management jerks teams around. They give you a project then transfer it away then assign another and then transfer it away. That does wonders for morale.
    Everything moves very slowly. Adoption of new technology and methodology is years behind.

    Advice to Management

    Get the engineering org to catalog existing functionality. It isn't good when a group is OEMing a competitors solution when there is an in house one they don't even know exists.
    Address morale problems
    Move organization toward quicker technology adoption and allow time for employee innovation.

    "Extremely Dirty Political Game"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There are no pros other than my co-workers were great bunch of people to work with.

    Cons

    Extremely dirty office politics
    Management doesn't have the courage to face the employees in person so they ask the recruiting company to do their dirty job of letting us know due to budget cut, we don't have to go in tomorrow. No warning, no word, nothing.

    Advice to Management

    The worst leadership I've had to endure. Give up dirty politics and appreciate loyalty and hard work of their employees. Should give enough time to look for another job when they decide they don't need employee services anymore.
