    Pros

    Company had a good CEO and people but everything was changed. New CEO is Russian, company belongs to him and it influences a lot on the way the company works.

    Cons

    Decisions are made by small circle of people close to CEO, sometimes not even professionals. Easy to get title which does not mean such experience. CEO and his management changes their mind every day, they are not able to manage their people properly and close projects successfully. There are always limited resources and new management is not able to manage them efficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people (management) who worked in big companies and have no idea what to do with limited resources.

    Pros

    Has some great people in the middle and lower management areas of the company who are the heartbeat and commercial engine of the company

    Cons

    Poor ego driven senior management who are more interested in gaining favour with the CEO rather than great execution and leadership. this together with disjointed process does not allow the real talent in the company to thrive

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on being great leaders not on the title on your business card

    Please reach out to me, I would like to know more details about your comp plan concerns. To my knowledge no comp plans have been altered like that.

    Pros

    A few smart people there.

    Cons

    Way too many product lines for a company without strong marketing and PR engine. Top executive team has no direction.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the people and treat them well. They will in turn work harder for you and turn the company around. Otherwise they will abandon ship.

    Pros

    Free beverages and snacks in the kitchen

    Cons

    Ridiculous amount of turn-over in employees, including upper level management. Management style - both on the sales and technical support side - is aggressive and hostile at times. One of the managers had gotten suspended for some pretty immature actions during the time of my employment there, and I'm sad to say that they are still there today.

    Pros

    Good teams, good products, and a very flexible work environment. The company strongly believes in hiring talent as opposed to hiring who is located where they are.

    Cons

    Lack of focus and motivation has left the company hemorrhaging. The third CEO in two years is now on board, which gives hope, but is also indicative of general morale.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house (they did in the past couple of weeks) and give employees a reason to care.

    Pros

    Had a great industry leading product with a world class channel group.

    Cons

    They have slid on the technology side and are not leaders anymore. Senior management turnover has been rampant (5 major changes in 3 years). Toxic environment for those left.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the basics.

    Pros

    It is a company that has good potential and good products. Our current technology is excellent. Customers like our products. We are moving to a VAR model which is fun to be involved with.

    Cons

    Exec management here is the pits. They are way over their heads and it shows. CEO and sales exec VP are a cartoon. They treat employees like gerbils on a treadmill. Mid-level management is good but gets little help from the top. Poor pay and a revolving door for employees. I don't see management making good decisions to grow the company.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in more people with more diverse software experience than you have. Bring in more people with VAR experience.
