    Great people and quality of life. Nice offices and a good casual friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Naive arrogance - the field of software continues to move forward and rejecting or ignoring guidance that will assisi in being contemporary and competitive is foolish. This company wastes enormous amounts of money on know-it-alls who don't know it all - not by a longshot.

    Advice to Management

    Get a calendar - it is 2016 - failing to act like it is embarrasing.

    Pros

    Innovative industries are it's focus. Some brilliant people. A good percentage of their products are industry leading. A long storied history of technical innovation.

    Cons

    Unable to grasp longer term trends. Does not invest in it's various divisions. Does not invest in it's people. It was very quick to embrace USA employment advantages (i.e. no 'European' benefits for the Americans). They are no longer truly innovative. They have a very serious case of innovators dilemma (unable to destroy their existing/dying business to replace it with what's competitors are coming at them with from the outside). A dying company.

    Advice to Management

    Take more chances. Invest more in your future and less in maintaining just the present.
