Pros

Great coworkers. Benefits are okay...better than others. At one point management enjoyed making the department a more fun and lively place.

Cons

Horrible management. Attempts to weasel out of paying employees what they're entitled. Bad communication practices between management and their lower level employees.

Advice to Management

Happy employees are productive employees. If you treat your employees like garbage you're going to get minimal effort in getting work done. If so many people are actively looking for employment elsewhere then there's obviously an issue...

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Cool technology, most of technical people are very competent; non technical people are very nice too, as long as they aren't managers.

    Cons

    Lack of direction, lack of clear communication between management and lower level employees. Managers don't seem to know what they're doing. You can feel a strong sense of distrust between the new "architects" and the solutions development teams. Apparently, it doesn't matter how good you are, the new architect will tell you what to do and how to do it. Micromanagement everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Very difficult. Most of old "managers" were fired. The new CTO should open his mind and leave all the prejudices aside; please, try to understand the business and the technology behind before proposing new solutions.
