    Pros

    Tollgrade had a unique market position when it comes to testing out forms of communication ranging from telecom, pots, dsl, cable, QOS, and VOIP.

    Cons

    No market vision. No one with a vision for the future of the products. Products died off and no one available with the nuts to do whats right.

    Advice to Management

    Your marketing has ALWAYS been weak. Products started being discontinued due to fact that no vision was ever in place to utilize the potential of the products.

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible work hours but only if your manager allows it.

    Cons

    Senior management has no vision, product execution is very poor. There is no accountability for failure to deliver products on time, under the budget, or of the required quality. It is a waste of time to put in extra work effort since it is usually not recognized. The only way to get a decent raise is if you are working on a critical project and threaten to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Develop and share a corporate vision. Hole people accountable for their failures.
