    - Relaxed work place
    - Many good managers with engineering background
    - Willing to provide training and enrichment
    - Free Coffee, good cafeteria


    - Company goals/strategy were a moving target
    - Resistance to change to new software tools

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to settle on a market segment and stick with it. I also found there was a disconnect between the strategy level and implementation level. Need to open up those lines of communication and be willing to listen, explain, and discuss.
