    I worked at Redline Communications (More than a year)

    Pros

    Innovators. Great technology and product. Focus in verticals

    Cons

    No real roadmap. Competition is catching up quickly and there is no real business understanding. therefore, lack of strategy and planning in the mid and long terms.

    Advice to Management

    Execution is about executors. Management lacks of business understanding and people sjills. Trust, empowerment and long-term vision. Focus on the know-how and get away from box-selling.

    Pros

    Maybe a place to start if you are a junior looking to gain some experience.

    Cons

    - not even a room to have lunch. There is a small kitchen, with no place to sit down to eat. Everybody heats its lunch in microwave and come to eat at his desk.
    - salary freezing since 2008
    - toxic environment with a lot of politics

    Advice to Management

    - listen to your employees and treat them well.
    - be more professional and less political
    - have a kitchen with places to eat lunch, not letting employees eating at their desk.

    Pros

    It's a high technology company, with proprietary patents in a growth industry. Many colleagues are top notch people. The brightest and the best. If you have a good report that defends and protects you it can be a good place to work.

    Cons

    It's a work-camp. Everything is a panic. Poor planning. Management does not mean what they say. They are for the most part arrogant and incompetent. Bonuses, as with AIG, are paid first to the chiefs, then if anything is left over employees might get something. Not focused on growing the company organically. Highly political environment. Adversarial relationships are encourages by management. The employee that screams the loudest usually gets their way.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to you employees. Make strategies that work and stick to them.
