    I worked at VocalTec full-time

    Pros

    - they have a variety of coffee in the break room
    - the elevator is pretty fast

    Cons

    There are many. This is the parent company of magicJack and magicJack for business. The product for the business side sucks. Majority of the customers complain about the product or return it. No one seems to know what is going on. Management is probably the worst. They don't know what they are doing. People in lower positions know more then they do. Micro management is a way of life here. Most employees there are looking for an exit. It's that bad. This company probably won't last long. Save your time and just say no to any job affiliated with magicJack. Turn around is so high! You might get hired and fired within a month just because. They do not care at all about their employees. If you have a child and they happen to get sick one day. There is a high possibility they will fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Your management is terrible. They don't even know what's going on 90% of the time. MagicJack for Business is very poorly ran. My advice... fire everyone in upper management and try again!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at VocalTec full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people I worked with were great and wanted a common goal of a better product and better financial results.

    Cons

    Management basically does not exist. Except that is when they don't agree with the decisions that people were self empowered to make.....then they were very much involved and unprofessional.

    I worked at VocalTec as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A company with a strong growth and big marketshare in VOIP.

    Cons

    Management with many technical skills, however no clear objective for managing, nor clear leadership...

    Advice to Management

    Go back to school get some classes to help you with understanding of business management. Please stop using an accounting jargon "book", you don't book a book, but record transactions in a book. Develop and document office procedures, inlcuding specific jobs' descriptions.
