    Outstanding leadership that is honest and customer focused. Terrific culture with a very open and honest culture. Serves all markets, especially major corps.


    Growing so fast it is hard to keep up. Requires dedication and hard work. Yoou need to be personally organized and responsive to customer and company demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in developing new products, increase marketing spend and never lose the customer focus

    Interview Details

    Very straight forward process. Solid people asking direct questions about experience, accomplishments and decisions from past jobs. Several layers of interviews gives good perspective of the company, culture, employees and expectations. Not always efficient in lining up next steps due to the work load of employees, but overall very good process.
