    Land of the pointing fingers

    Finance Manager (Current Employee) Frisco, TX (US)

    ProsClose to home and retail

    ConsThe lack of ownership and responsibility managers take. Seen too many staff level employees become the victim of a managers blunder.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPursue a culture which seeks to problem solve first, not look for something to blame. Its pathetic.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poor leadership and complete lack of unified technical strategy

    Senior Manager (Former Employee) Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    ProsGood people (both native Genband employees as well as the employees acquired); competitive salaries relative to the telecom industry and the region; acceptable work/life balance; decent career growth opportunities

    ConsNo unified technical strategy; acquisitions made to chase the next shining object; no willingness to take risk; most senior levels are brought in and "old boys club" - risk takers and disturbers aren't welcome in the leadership ranks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop acting like drunken squirrels and focus; get a CTO that knows the industry past 1995; take risks.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No substance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood life-work balance. Competitive benefits. Friendly and respectful people.

    ConsThere is no product delivery behind the marketing. Marketing is misguided and not aligned with what they offer. All products are at least 10 to 15 yrs old. The Nortel clicks are getting formed again.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    GENBAND is a fast paced and exciting company to work for.

    Sales Operations Manager (Former Employee) Raleigh, NC (US)

    ProsPeople, leadership, market position. GENBAND's focus on R&D drives new market opportunities and positions GENBAND to remain a leader in its segment.

    ConsShrinking telecommunications market which keeps GENBAND in a consolidation vs, growth mode, competitors are plentiful in many of software and hardware products that GENBAND offers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to find ways to outpace the competition
