    Pros

    Very low level of politics. Not many of layers of leadership so you can talk to the senior most people fairly easily, Can make an impact instantly if you take the initiative. Cool technology. Prime acquisition target. Competitive base salary and healthcare benefits. Recent leadership changes/additions have been tremendous. Still some work to do in regards to letting consistent under performers go.

    Cons

    Although it has gotten better than it used to be, still way more work than we have people for. We seem to be unable to say no to sales opportunities so we end up spreading ourselves too think/ Need to focus and nail projects that contribute to our growth plans. That may mean shutting down projects/products that have been around awhile, but it will be for the best in the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need ro provide a consistent incentive plan of some sort for the employees. No Bonuses. No 401k match. This just isn't competitive. Also - be more visible and communicate more with the employees. Need more opportunities to socialize a bit and get to know each other better.

    Pros

    Since a leadership shakeup about a year ago, there is a strong team in place at the executive level. Most of the managers are outstanding. Performance is rewarded. Poor performance is dealt with. Compensation is competitive. Work-life balance is decent, no death-marches. HR actually seems to care about employees here. Technology is solid, and lots of potential to be a market leader, or juicy acquisition target, which could mean a nice new gig for all the technical talent.

    Cons

    Although they have been cleaning house, there are still a few weak links. Again, it seems they are trying to improve things since booting several execs who were toxic, so there is hope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You fixed the top layer, now fix the next couple of layers down. There are only a handful more of "mistakes" to fix, you know who they are, (hint: look in IT, PM, Wallet) then we will be close to nirvana.

    Pros

    Great potential for growth, cool technology, good people.

    Cons

    Only a couple real strong leaders on exec team... One President, POS Engineering VP, VP HR and CEO all professionals, the rest struggle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people you hire do their jobs. Don't swoop in and distract them or usurp their authority.
