    Pros

    Not much going on by the way of projects.

    Cons

    Even though there is no much going on by the way of projects you are expected to be in the office before 9 AM. Management is insecure about their jobs

    Advice to Management

    Company is dying anyways, so atleast keep good relationships with ur colleagues.

    Pros

    Learned on the job, from helpful managers and great co-workers.

    Cons

    Any good managers or helpful co-workers were "downsized" some time ago. This place only exists anymore for senior management to draw an over-inflated paycheck. CEO hired his buddy to run the place, his sole job skill seems to be running companies into bankruptcy.

    Advice to Management

    Be ashamed of yourselves.

    Pros

    1) I met some pretty good people working here. 2) It was a paycheck...

    Cons

    It's not much of a paycheck. No real room for growth or advancement. Very unorganized company.

    Pros

    Easy job, people are nice, leave at 5 every single day. Tons of employee activities. Lunches, parties, movies, summer hours, etc.

    Cons

    This company is over. Layoffs all the time. Bad management.

    Advice to Management

    Call it a day and sell the company. You are dying.

    Pros

    Some very good people there. The opportunity to market does have value

    Cons

    Poor long term strategy, day to day revenue analysis make growth very difficult. There is also a lack of focus and support for product lines, several of which are falling well behind competitors. Very limited sales opportunities, poor commission structure.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you know how to do, hire people with related experience to help you do what you do not know.
