    Pros

    Good products; great technical people.

    Cons

    Most management decisions were short-term oriented, not for for long-term growth; a lot of top management had big egos and appeared to make decisions that increased value for stock options but decreased business potential for the long-term.

    Advice to Management

    Downsize quickly and focus on great products; get rid to "big-ego" management

    Pros

    3 days on 4 days off 12 hour shifts. Excellent benefits, Family atmosphere. I had A chance to learn something new and really enjoyed doing it (Data Entry).

    Cons

    I am a person who likes to go to work and perform and see progress, needless to say everybody who show up for work don't intend on being productive and sometime slow down the flow of work.

    Advice to Management

    Management was great I had wonderful Teacher and Leaders at this Company. I like when managers aren't afraid of helping their team and that what I experienced.
