    Pros

    Benefits are awesome. Like medical, even parent are covered and term insurance four times for CTC.

    Cons

    Quality of work is very basic. Mostly looks like QA site. Developers are many times idle and many managers useless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get more quality of work here.

    Pros

    Had a the opportunity to do well with product

    Cons

    Executive extremely poor, if you were part of the bros club then things went well even if you did not perform. Total abuse by upper management, wasted money on lavish parties etc.

    Pros

    Great people and products

    Cons

    Lack of diversity in opportunities, salary inequity and persistent discrimination against women make it a difficult place if you are female.
    If you are looking for work life balance do not come to this company.

    Pros

    Very good benefit program, will be moving to Intel entirely in a few months with the integration. They give stock to all employees which is a benefit. Great cause in making the world a safer place. Good flexibility, but a lot of work to do.

    Cons

    Ton of work, always running leaner than we should be. Always facing budget cuts and RIFs happen far too often. Distrust of management ranks in certain functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction and stick to it. Mike Decesare had us headed in the right direction as evidence by getting back to growth, but with new leader on board he feels a need to course correct. Cut back on the RIFs, it is horrible for employee morale.
