Job Security

There is no job security, company routinely has layoffs which are executed by HR with little to no say from managers, often resulting in unexpected loss of workers that were generally considered good workers. I saw several rounds before it hit me and have heard of several since with thousands of people losing their jobs. Those that remain have mandatory over-time to fill in the work gap. If you want a lasting career this is not the place to look.

Suggestions for improvement

  • New upper management and some decoupling with HR

What I like about the company

They make cool products and the work itself is interesting.

What I dislike about the company

The parent company likes layoffs, a lot. They are willing to lose a wealth of knowledge and sacrifice future growth if it means a decent quarterly return to stockholders.
