    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The food court was nice. Also, a lot of the coworkers that you find there are extremely nice and fantastic people.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. They constantly tell you one thing in personal "one-on-ones" and then when it comes to review time, they say totally different things. Instead of being encouraging about a promotion, they promote the people who management personally like, instead of focusing on ability to do the job at hand. Just because you aren't best friends with your supervisor or manager doesn't mean you should be looked over for promotions or advancement in the company. The raises here are also terrible - 1% or less!

    Advice to Management

    Get some supervisors and middle management who are truthful with the accomplishments of employees. Just because a supervisor or manager doesn't like you doesn't mean you should be looked over for promotions.

    Pros

    Interesting work subjects. Interesting technical challenges. Very nice cafeteria. Many of the individual contribitors and front line managers are nice people.

    Cons

    Very poor strategic planning and communication from upper management. Everything is "top" priority. Company does not understand project management, resouce management, or portfolio management.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communications.
