    Pros

    Incredible group of people to work with, very open in terms of innovation/collaboration, telecommute, relatively flexible hours, bonus system and professional development plans, great company to learn about global impact of software within industry and promote the idea of working as a family

    Cons

    Innovation/collaboration only goes so far, Professional development hits a ceiling in under 5 years so succession planning is limited, executive management seem to be holding on for retirement, Quarterlry town halls are long winded exercises that even the executives seem bored of.

    Advice to Management

    Step aside and let some new ideas breathe innovation in to this flagging software company or look for investors to build the company further
