    Positive atmosphere, good leadership

    Consulting Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsSmart coworkers, competent managers. Seems like a well-run company. Integration of recent acquisitions seems to be going pretty well.

    ConsThere's the usual obsession with quarterly results, but that goes with the territory. I guess you could say it's more of a marketing culture than an engineering one, which some people might find annoying.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    FUN!! Tenure from $240M to $1.1B+

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood people and great CEO! We'll see about their vision but at least their not afraid to make serious moves and try to execute. To work there, you have to buy into their vision as if it's your own.

    ConsOPNET guys need to get on board! They're still stuck thinking that the Cascade stuff sucks. But the Cascade stuff is THE leader in the Gartner MQ in the NPM&D. OPNET is NOT the leader but is in the leader's quadrant. There's still a cultural issue on the RPM side. OPNET needs to let the old ways of doing things go and learn the new ways.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't give titles to managers without the same level of authority. Waste of time and money; give them the authority to execute. Also, channel sales teams need quotas. The channel training has always suffered as there's no accountability with these teams and I just never valued any partner. Lastly, get rid of RPM RSMs. One sales guy with a core SE and overlay SE's/Consultants for OPNET, Cascade, Stingray, Whitewater and Granite.

    Talented individuals and great work culture. Compensation needs to be improved

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosit is a great culture where employees are encouraged to take responsibility and are empowered to innovate. The company is moving in the right direction with respect to vision and shareholder value.

    ConsNavigating all the team and processes involved in getting changes done

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation should be improved. A lot of the salaries are below standard compensation in the industry. We need to stop churn with better compensation packages
