    Pros

    Short term projects execution is somewhat ok. However, there are frequent changes in directions that creates organizational fatigue and employee burnout.

    Cons

    Long term strategy and execution lack focus and commitment. The detrimental effects of the lack of vision can significantly alter the trajectory of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be cognizant of the long term vision and commit appropriate resources

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Communicate to them.

    Pros

    Nothing but 1990s mgt. did anyone see the latest marketing or LinkedIn campaign. Amateur hour.. spelling mistakes .. totally useless. I can believe any reasonable company would spend money on these idiots.

    Cons

    Useless , incompetent Management - even worst than tartavell. He was not good. I really hope we lose the contract with our Big US client. We are totally useless with only top mgt thinking they are brilliant

    I have been working at Mavenir full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the newer products have potential. Recently acquired companies with experienced and knowledgeable employees. Employees who are laid off are given ample notice.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs, no communicated direction, irrational demands from upper management, low morale. Upper management has created a toxic environment by having random layoffs and not communicating with the rank-and-file employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with employees, provide direction and guidance, and help create pride in the brand. Start to undo the toxic environment you created.
