    Nice and friendly people on my team. OK work-life balance.

    Cons

    Sr. Management is totally disconnected from reality and has no true vision or direction. Employed too many MBA types and not enough techs. Internal bureaucracy is unreal. Numerous pointless and misguided internal procedures and policies really prevent work from being done. The company does not promote from within. Performance bonuses are non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    You've brought great shame onto what once was a great company. Consider seppuku.
