    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Intellectual workforce with dedicated Customer Service & Support and Operations but Product Develolment and Sales has not had effective leadership in many years.

    Cons

    Prod Dev cannot hit a base run much less a home run. prod Dev leadership hired from McAfee and had never took a product to market. CEO in in over his head and beyond his depth. Sales has terminated leadership rice in the last 6 months. Company is disjointed since BAE acquisition. messaging security in CO has no future in this acquired business.

    Advice to Management

    Replace Prod Dev and Sales leadership...again and get it right. Get out from under BAE which is piling down with bureaucracy and trying to make their consulting sales model your product/service sales model. New CEO to bring new perspective.

    Large company after being acquired by BAE. Seemed to get forgotten as part of the overall line card.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    None. You must enter at least 5 words for Pros

    Cons

    Favoritism in your face. You will gain access to the bully group if you bring Starbucks everyday. Just not a good work environment. If you are considered the "favorite" you can work from home and take days off without using your personal time off. Upper management will never know.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the low morale.

    Pros

    I was given many opportunities to take on new challenges. I was stretched and given chances to test my new exposure.

    Cons

    The customer mix was a challenge. The company acquired several other companies and this a support challenge.

    Pros

    The amount of progress the company made over the past five years is astounding. Low performers were phased out from the top down and replaced by top players. Standout orgs are sales, product and ops teams.

    Cons

    Recently acquired by a large public company. Worried that will slow down a nimble, agile start up type culture with a deluge of bureaucracy and red tape.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the things that got us here working.

    The benefit plan is OK, including insurance, 401K. No training program, they expect you to learn in work.

    Develop training and coaching program for new hires.
