    I have been working at Datawatch full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management is not afraid to try new things. Most of the management team is highly experienced, has been with the company less than 3 years, and has turned this company around. It's not as difficult to get things done in Datawatch as it is in other companies in this space like IBM, SAP, Oracle etc.

    Datawatch has attracted some of the most successful and sought after technical and sales professionals in this market. Just look at the stock price over the past 2 years. They're doing something right!

    Michael Morrison is the best CEO and visionary that I have ever worked with. The strength of Michael's leadership, and the team that he has assembled, is what is turning this great company around.

    Datawatch has a large and loyal customer-base and a solid and relevant software solution.

    Cons

    Datawatch is a great small company but you don't have the resources or name-recognition that you get in larger companies. Datawatch needs greater market presence and better analyst coverage so that they are considered more often in competitive cycles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am concerned about Datawatch becoming too top-heavy too quickly. The revenue to spend ratio needs to be more favorable.

    Enforce integrity in everything!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Datawatch in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very easy. I meet with two individuals who both asked the same questions. One however, went a bit deeper into explaining everything the job required. One should be warned of the total disregard of professionalism with this company, both towards customers and employees. The job is very simple. It may take a while to learn everything but this is normal considering there are many different situations that may arise and some do not come up very often. Just demonstrate that you are willing to do the work and be quick about learning the system after you get the job. Ask a lot of questions. Make friends! This is most important as your training will suck and co-workers and supervisors will simply not tell you everything you need to know if you can't figure it out. Also, be aware that the effort you put into this job is meaningless. Some people have been there for years and ask for help on every other call. P.S. No one there really knows everything about how the system operates. There is a lot of winging it involved and a handful of workers who are indispensable because they actually know what can not be taught (custom system and unique customer relationships) so they always have final word. Make friends if you can. But don't come off to eager to do your job. There are other priorities to consider.
