    Technical Support Engineer Tier II (Former Employee) Plano, TX (US)

    Prosdonuts on Fridays, training reimbursement, stock options, great health ins

    Constraining is superficial, too many products to work if on the LTAM team, no opportunity to specialize if on the LTAM team

    Advice to Senior Managementdont let LTAM handle its own hiring, and dont heavily rely on contractors as managers tend to treat them as disposable specially in tier I

    Generally No Worse Than Any Other Large Company But Realize It Is A Large Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA (US)

    ProsWork At Home Flexibility In Some Business Units Depending On Role & Manager
    Always Something Going On & Changing Your Day Will Feel Like 10 Minutes Long
    Fair Pay, Good Benefits etc
    Great people to work with.

    ConsCan be a bit bureaucratic when trying to get something done.
    Like other companies constantly doing more with less leaving staff strained feeling unsuccessful.
    Upper management seems to not know what really is happening in the trenches.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to do something, plan it and provide the resources to ensure it is successful.
    While our colleagues in India are an enormous asset, you rely too much on overseas labor resulting in timezone issues. A better mix globally would be appreciated.
