    "Bad place to work if you are at the bottom of the food chain. Recognition doesn't happen on technical employees."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If you are on a managerial position only. Not much layoffs. Market standard benefits. Salary as also the same as market standards.

    Cons

    Top management doesn't recognize real contributor. Favoritism is all over the place. Too many people passing their workload to other people. Meetings there is equal to "blame storming" not "brain storming"

    Advice to Management

    Start acknowledging people and stop hogging the credits. Just remember that not all people are happy just having a job or just having the nice salary. If employees are not properly recognized for their work, they will tend to leave.

    incompetent senior managers

    Advice to Management

    Its a joke to work for this company. Not sure who you all bribed to get on the best company to work for list. There are other companies who deserve to be number one.

    Pros

    Good technology if you are in core data storage areas
    Good pay & benefits

    Cons

    We can create a linked list of management chain with the link property set as personal acquaintence. Talent is irrelevent in selecting people in high positions - favoritism rules. Managers form opinion not based on rsults of work but on the opinion of their favorite "lead". Very bad for energetic neutral engineers who are not "aligned" to management drinking cool-aid.

    There are quite a few good managers around and if you are lucky to be with them, your life is good. Having few product lines, job rotation is not an option and best way to advance your career path is to leave for a better job.

    Advice to Management

    Mid management and some architects with questionable talent in a lot of groups will pull down the company. When favoritism & politics rule, bad talents accumulate and let the good talent leave.

    Pros

    time off when you need it. nice cafeteria, good food, nice people

    Cons

    Lots of contractors with great ideas that are willing to share with us permanent folks. However, unfortunate how some of the permanent folks have taken advantage of contractors ideas and represent them as their own. It is called job security. Also seems that some of my fellow arrogant perm. peers that have not been doing their job, have an attitude that they are untouchable as far as ever getting layed off. They need a reality check.

    Advice to Management

    Think Senior Mgm't should hire some individuals to work undercover in the company to see what really is going on. Seems to be alot of dead wood in the co. all the way up to the Sr. Mgmt level.
    One manager gets moved from one dept to another dept because he can't do his job in the other dept. only to rely on other Jr. level individuals recommendations so that he can present these as his own recommendations to Sr. Mgm't. Company needs to do a shake up and needs to readdress the systems and processes currently in place.

    Pros

    Friendly enough atmosphere in the local office.

    Cons

    Upper engineering management listens only to positive news and considers any criticism to be the mark of complainers.

    Advice to Management

    Consider mid-line+ managers in the next housecleaning. Some of the management has been ineffective forever but are still there.

    Pros

    People are compensated very well.

    Cons

    Way too much politics, especially weird in a company that promotes itself on not being political. Quite the opposite is true.
    The term "work life balance" has no real meaning.

    Advice to Management

    Look for leaders who truly value employees...too many are just working to keep the spotlight on themselves and the expense of their employees.
