    Pros

    Interesting work
    Great health benefits with Wellness Program
    Suburban location of HDQ

    Cons

    Currently in turmoil
    Best leaders have left or are being ignored

    Advice to Management

    To have any chance to get out of the mess you're in, you need to start looking at your employees, and realize the value they have to your company. Right now the leadership is in it for themselves (and their stock), and it's obvious.

    Pros

    Very organized company that takes care of their employees. They are very inclusive of different cultures and take part in events. The facilities at the main campus are amazing.

    Cons

    Upper management was not as accessible and a lot of negative changes once the company went Public. Downsizing great departments, laying off long time workers. People loved the CEO prior to going public. The company dynamics changed a lot after he left. Not to say the new leadership was bad, it was just different and the mass layoffs before going public was hurtful to a lot of people that had 15-20 or more years of service.

    Pros

    Work life some Managers allow you to work from home.

    Cons

    Too many rounds of layoffs, teams don't work together only interested in keeping their jobs. Moving too many jobs out of US, and hiring inexpensive workers within their own group.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the layoffs,

    Good work culture. Provides Flex work schedules. Occasional work from home etc.
    Exciting domain to work in. (Travel Space).
    Has a lot of talented people with domain expertise.

    Slow to react to market trends. Lots of legacy products. Due to cost cutting, almost all new hire is being done in Krakow and Bangalore, India. Compromise on quality for cost.

    Pros

    Great people
    Good pay and decent benefits

    Cons

    Recent layoffs have affected employee morale.
    The 'great' people get overworked
    The 'OK' people get by doing much less and sometimes get promoted

    Advice to Management

    * Listen
    * Abusing your good employees - by giving them more and more work - with limited opportunities for advancement - will eventually make them leave
    * Think of a few creative ways to improve morale and get our team dynamic back
    * Stop the rolling layoffs - DO them and be done - employees are having a hard time focusing - thinking that the next round of layoffs are coming.
