    Great team members and direct management, Senior Management had the shiny-toy syndrome

    I worked at SmartSynch

    Pros

    Very Flexible on work hours. Interesting technology and problems. Excellent knowledge sharing and collaboration among the team members. Never a dull moment working there.

    Cons

    Zero chance of promotion from within the engineering staff unless you had a personal relationship with the upper management. There was a complete lack of understanding about how much work goes into creating their products or how many resources were actually available to work on a project. Additionally, the upper management seemed to chance any idea that caught their fancy regardless of the impact to current work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit chasing every opportunity that comes down the pipe. With limited resources, you have to be picky. Train your sales staff better so they quit selling product you don't have with delivery schedules set in stone before even consulting engineering.

    Disapproves of CEO
