    Pros

    You can tell there was a time when this was a great company to work for. Valued its employees, compensated them well, had a good culture. When I first started there, I had a lot of fun and worked hard but never resented the effort put into my job because it all seemed worth it.

    Cons

    Over the past few years, it's been on the decline but the buyout by G really pounded the last nail into the coffin. Things fell apart, the acquisition was handled clumsily and with an "I'll just ignore what I don't like and it'll go away" approach, and people were treated like nameless assets instead of human beings.

    Advice to Management

    You have nothing without good people. Figure out how to show that you value the ones who are doing all the work.

  2. Continuous force reduction

    Pros

    Really smart engineers and nice people

    Cons

    Very low morale due to continuous force reduction

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to give people some job security or no one will want to work here.
