The company does try it's best to be Google

Suggestions for improvement

  • Sell to someone that will give a decent return to the shareholders because I give the current management team 0% chance in succeeding and righting the ship.

What I like about the company

Nothing comes to mind.

What I dislike about the company

Management cares more about what WallStreet may think than doing what is right; they promote their buddies; the senior management is awful and littered with incompetent personnel; the VP of Product and VP of UX in the 20 years of combined service has done nothing but hurt the company; the sales team sells the impossible then blames the Engineering department for not delivering; HR department is clueless; they fire people every year in December to save money on the books; the tech stack is old and littered with holes; their business model is failing them and they aren't intelligent enough to pivot; they've lost every big client they have had and are going to lose another in Verizon; if they sign the only large company out there in need of a portal (AT&T) they'll blow it just like they did with UPC, Charter, Verizon, etc.
