"Great company to work for on the leading edge of technology, but has a ton to learn when it comes to managing their people. The CEO is all business first. Great benefits package, but again the management of its people are poor."

"No career path exists. Managers, even higher level managers, can't answer basic questions about what criteria is used to determine who is promoted and who is not. Yearly raises are minuscule, and the average employee seems to get a promotion about every 8 years."
