    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more in-touch with the soldiers on the ground. All executive staff should meet with a non-senior employee for at least an hour each week. I think the company would do much better if executive and senior staff listened more. This isn't about having to deal with complaints about work hours or pay or benefits, it's so that management has a better sense of where teams are on their projects.

    Pros

    great experience, good people, awesome product, good financial backers, opportunity for huge growth, nice work environment, generous stock options, start up experience

    Cons

    long hours, little recognition, chaotic environment, no feedback on performance, very reactionary management style, lots of politics for a small company

    Advice to Management

    Establish a good strategic plan and direction and share it with the employees. Most activity is uncoordinated and the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing.
