    Pros

    Small company but there is a lot of talent there, both in the management and executive ranks as well as in the technical roles. I learned a lot and really looked up to the management team.

    Cons

    Dealing with employee attrition is tricky.. change in market focus is hard to achieve without full engineering buy in.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have a crystal ball, but I would suggest putting more focus on the tactical short term product roadmap to really go after new markets rather than longer term stuff that won't benefit for some years.
