    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.

    I have been working at GENBAND (More than a year)

    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.
