    Pros

    -Management trusts employees to get their jobs done; very little micro-managing
    -Salary
    -Co-workers are on same team, not my competition
    -Achievements are rewarded

    Cons

    -Too focused on short-term financial objectives
    -Metrics on which we are measured are not always in the best interest of company

    Advice to Management

    -Look at the big picture; It is better to have a bad quarter than to neglect issues which will adversely affect the company in the next five years.

    Pros

    Open door policy with managers and they are approachable. Generally one has the right tools to work with including a CRM as Salesforce.

    Cons

    It is all about numbers and it seems that this focus on "numbers", be they quota, sales funnels, etc. tends to obscure one's other achievements.

    Advice to Management

    What are your long range plans, product goals, etc.? Please communicate them better and more consistently.
