    Pros

    Work life balance is good. There are many nice people who work there.

    Cons

    There is no growth plan. It's a very stagnant environment, it feels a bit like you're among the walking dead. There are no growth opportunities for people who work outside the tech areas of the business. Very demotivating.

    Advice to Management

    They need to bring in some outsiders to help them figure out their future. They think they can figure things out for themselves but they've proved they can't. Their value proposition is unclear and while their brand is well known, no one really knows what it stands for. People placed high hopes on Moshe but the word is that his performance has been very disappointing.


  2. "Need strategic direction now!"

    Pros

    Better than average pay, some good employees still remain, commute distance one of the best in the valley, and products that still retain some competitive edge.

    Cons

    Politics and not merit determine retention and promotion, more and more isolation into silos and cells within the company, more and more territorial as layoffs continue, and complete lack of strategic direction.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on saying the priority is to roll out the next generation families and really spend some time on a cohesive strategic direction for the company. Then, communicate this direction to the employees and stick with it. As Teddy Roosevelt said: "In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing." Time to do something because nothing is not working...
