    Pros

    The people who work there are great. Originally the company had a lot of promise, great potential. Originally, it was a leader in its industry and had top rated customer service.

    Cons

    The owners of the company are determined to kill the company and so have sold off all of the viable business. Those who remain do so only so the remaining business can be moved away. There is no go forward solution.

    Some of the business decisions of the main company have derailed the morale of the people who really would like to see the business succeed.

    When making overall Business Decisions that impact everyone, try to err on the side of realism and take a risk and lead the business in a new direction.

    Pros

    Good starting point for industry entry level position. Provided sales team with comprehensive training and regular product updates. Professional services and sales engineering provide great sales support and commission up sell opportunities.

    Cons

    Sales is inundated with customer support issues. Support rarely resolves customer problems and frustrated customers turn to sales in order to get a "live body". No advancement path from sales position except for changing companies. Management is not engaged with the needs of and challenges faced by sales. No forum for exchanging ideas (even of a positive/proactive nature).

    Advice to Management

    Sales is the conduit to your customers ... get inclusive ... get them involved with management before products and services are in final development.

    Plenty of freedom for creativity as long as the job is done.

    Cons

    Politics at the top end.

    Advice to Management

    Cross the department boundaries and work better together.

    Pros

    Freedom to make decisions if you are secure enough to handle the consequences. Begging for forgiveness is much better than asking for permission as you will likely never get permission.

    Cons

    Decision can take a very long time if you have to wait for the top management to get back to you. The company isn't growning and that's a concern.

    Advice to Management

    Let your managers manage.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    They have paid out bonuses every year
    Good people to work with

    Cons

    Company rotates its CEO from NTT Communications every 3-5 years. Each one tries drive the company into a new direction.
    Promotions are practically non-existent
    Financial decisions are short sighted

    Advice to Management

    The CEO shuffle would be okay if there was a fixed direction that other members of the leadership team were taking the company. Being yes-men when the new CEO wants to go in a crazy new direction has resulted in negative company growth.
