    Pros

    Pay Office environment, until lately Company outings and events, until lately Very good work/life balance, until lately Company kitchen is very convenient and well stocked

    Cons

    Oh, where to begin? After a bumpy ride for a few years, the company really came into it's own and seemed to be thriving...until it was bought out. Morale is at an all time low. The work location is still absolutely horrible, and will continue to be via a renewed lease. Everyone is looking out for themselves instead of working as a team. People are worried about if they'll have a job. Good management/VP got let go. The technology is ancient.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people who make the company successful! Stop selling out!

    Pros

    * If you want a job where you can sit back and be lazy, this is the place for you. * They tend to be very loyal, often hiring back former employees who quit or get fired. Though, I'm not sure that's a good thing.

    Cons

    Middle and upper management spend more time trying to stab each other in the back than get actual products out the door. * Antiquated technology * Antiquated thinking * Not a technology company.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you're a technology company, and understand what that means.

    Pros

    Casual work environment and work / life balance Some career growth possible Good location Ok compensation

    Cons

    Disloyal senior management trying to sell the company No accountability in senior management Too political for a company this small No real innovation done recently, just renaming past products Too much disparity between groups Losing talented people either voluntarily or forcing them out Immoral practices

    Advice to Management

    Reduce executive compensation. Invest in employees instead. Get rid of politics. Promote/commend employees who do the real work, not who are taking credit for it.


  6. Go elsewhere if you consider your career growth important

    Pros

    Pay is fair Good work/home life balance Unique work experience working with Indian casino gaming Casual work environment and dress code

    Cons

    Training is virtually nonexistent Disorganized in a lot of business processes Support from management is lacking at times Employees are placed in positions without consideration of their qualifications or their career path

    Advice to Management

    When you unilaterally pigeonhole your employees into undesirable positions, you're pretty much telling them you don't value them as employees and they will go elsewhere. Start treating your employees as partners instead of flunkies. Work with them on their career paths to find the best fit for both the employee and the company.
