Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Trend Micro full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Easy to coast and be comfortable and not have to work too hard

Cons

Company loyalist are being fired right and left in favor of Wael's team of people from Third Brigade. Rumor has it Wael is lobbying for the CEO position so he can turn around and sell the company.

Advice to Management

Make Wael the CEO and allow him to sell the company..a company that has lost its edge and innovative spirit.

    I have been working at Trend Micro full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people and the company does have a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Unless you are one of the favorites of the upper management, you are basically unable to have an impact on anything related to the strategy. Over the past year the management has changed and become very cut-throat in terms of firing/laying off people who weren't part of the "club".

    Advice to Management

    The CEO needs to back off and trust the people in the company to make the right decisions, and not micro manage every aspect of the product development phases/

    I worked at Trend Micro full-time

    Pros

    Great people....easy processes......thin management team so its easy to think outside the box and get things done. Old Trend is gone and new Trend reluctant to pay top dollar for good talent.

    Cons

    New management walks around on egg shells. Too many changes rolled out and too quick for employees to feel confident in direction.
    Major changes every 6 months has killed morale the past 2 years. NABU needs a Sales leader......not a dictator.

    Technology is ok. Deep Security is the only Play. The rest is avg at best.

    Advice to Management

    The "yes sir" act won't get you anywhere long term.
