    Pros

    not micro-managed
    decent pay and benefits
    sr. management genuinely has employees interests in mind
    nice campus in Wilsonville; nice facility in San Jose

    Cons

    can be political (isn't that true everywhere?)
    company is not on a strong growth path. Employee growth suffers as a result. Stagnant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take risks, move into new markets, grow the company. How can you fit into the "new economy"?
    consider better stock options and incentive plans for non-sales employees

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume when applying for jobs elsewhere

    Cons

    This company doesn't really care about its employees. There are managers here who are incapable in every sense of the word. It is amazing how they have managed to stay on board for as long as they have. If you are lucky, you can insulate yourself that way and earn bigger salaries every year while others do your work and barely grow. HR doesn't really address an employee's concerns. Internal politics decide your career growth or lack of it. Overall, awful place and lots of awful people.
