    I worked at GENBAND full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At one time was a respected company in a stable market with a bright future. A history of acquisitions built a strong, cohesive product portfolio.

    Cons

    It's hard to understand what this company does today. New leadership seems to be looking to get rich quick and isn't interested in taking care of its customers or employees.

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits, and the opportunity to work from home. Most of the products are cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack of communication between management and employees. There is very little opportunity for salary increases, only bonuses for target based company goals.

    Advice to Management

    There seems to be a lack of value placed on employees that have many years of experience. Also, it seems like they take every opportunity they can to outsource labor.

    Pros

    The work environment is great. The people are great. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved in the community and chances to get to know coworkers. Great family friendly environment.

    Cons

    It is hard to move up or around the Company at this time. I think they are working on creating work rotations from within but right now the turnover is higher than it needs to be do to the Company not giving opportunities for growth and advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Create better career paths. Need more internal job postings to allow smart and hard working individuals the opportunity for growth and advancement. You will have a more knowledgeable and committed workforce.

    Pros

    Close to home and retail

    Cons

    The lack of ownership and responsibility managers take. Seen too many staff level employees become the victim of a managers blunder.

    Advice to Management

    Pursue a culture which seeks to problem solve first, not look for something to blame. Its pathetic.
