    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A regular paycheck and not too long a commute. I'm well payed for what I do. Average place, standard benefits.

    Cons

    A good of compartamentalized knowledge, I always feel like management is not in touch with the rest of us and they seem very stingy with information regarding the company and the state of teh business. Presentation are staged to dispense information geared to stimulate people and it usually feels like a show and not really the truth.

    Advice to Management

    Get us all on the same page. Personally I feel like a mushroom.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    loose structure and casual environment, exposure to high tech. Really a good place if you work in their government contract department

    Cons

    structure too loose. very vague responsibility in their home department, very ineffective communication and very behind in implementing enterprise-level applicatioin.

    Advice to Management

    invest in long-term solution instead of focusing on short-term unsustainable fixes. invest in long term relationship with quality OEM vendors
