    Advice to Management

    There is new management. It recently laid off over thirty people. These new people in charge didn't want to do this, but were forced to because of the economics of the country and of the company. I don't know enough to offer any specific advice.
    The question below about Seth Birnbaum is not applicable, as he was tossed a few weeks ago.

    Pros

    I was fortunate to work in the QA area that had some of the best management in the company. Incredibly supportive, super empowering, and truly caring about each individual. The atmosphere was a perfect combination of layed back and focused. The team genuinely enjoyed working together and there was very little ego in play. The work was challenging and rewarding, and folks were consistently made to feel that their work mattered.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the same could not be said for the rest of the company. Ego was a huge issue in the rest of the place. lots of jockeying for position, lots of lying, lots of power plays. As time has worn on the company's financial situation has grown dire, as evidenced by late payment of paychecks & expenses to employees, failure to pay things like rent and bills, and (though employees are being lied to) efforts to sell off the company and/or technology. Upper management is showing increasingly diminished regard for the regular workers, and the sad the thing is that they continue to lie to them and string them along. If you need a job badly, then go ahead...but beware. Once you're on the inside you're going to find out quite a bit that you wish you'd known before walking in the door.

    Advice to Management

    Suggestion one, Leave; suggestion two, stop lying to your employees about what's going on and recognize that while you are angling for a big payoff, they're just trying to pay rent; suggestion three, knock of the nepotism; suggestion four, check your egos and allow the exceptionally skilled grouop you assembled to do exceptional things; suggestion five, accept that you don't own your employees and treat them as valued professionals and assets
