    Dynamic company that is entrepreneurial and at the mid tier and below really care about the business and work well as a team

    Cultural change with the recent merger and associated downsizing has impacted the pros mentioned in this review

    Advice to Management

    Need to renew the value of the employees that are interacting at the client level

    Pros

    - Small company, so individual contributors can make a big difference. - The company has hired a lot of skilled engineers over the years who haven't left. The relationships between coworkers are perhaps Vertical's best quality. - Product management is focused on future (BYOD / Mobile, Cloud) as well as the day to day needs of our dealers / customers. - Management is more focused these days on trying to make the company more of a community instead of just people showing up for a job. - For the age and size of the company the benefits are reasonable and the working hours are flexible.

    Cons

    - There is no real mentoring or career path planning for employees (other than at the VP level). - Lots of legacy technologies to maintain. Very few people work on "brand new" projects. - Poor organization of resources. When the company want to ship a product, the company goes into scramble mode with engineers doing QA.

    Pros

    Great people, communication was great between different departments. Everyone was always willing to help. Very fun place to work at

    Cons

    lots of hope of going IPO, lots of dreams, lots of late nights, lots of drinks and lots of food

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to lead the company to the promise land. No advice needed for a wonderful management crew.
