I have been working at Steelwedge Software full-time (More than 3 years)
Product is based on simple but powerful concept. Good product for nano and micro businesses. Manages to keep getting more money as investment every few years. Huge army of developers at their offshore centre and continuously growing. No formal HR head to impose rigid rules at offshore centre - in spite of 350 plus team size.
The VP/ head of sales changed for fifth time in as many years!! Most of the marketing team left the organization in the past year. How so many leaders, successful elsewhere - before and after SW - failed to deliver, leads one to wonder if the problem is with the sales team or with the product and services the company offers. Are their offerings proving like combs for bald people? If one is on a client facing team, god save that person. Representing the company is like eroding all your credibility. Surprisingly, the engineering team continues to work in a open ended research mode - without respect for project and customer activity deadlines while resolving issues refusing to provide commitments to deliver within stipulated times; that in spite of having a team with a huge head count. way above the industry average for a company of this size. And they bully the rest of the organization and encourage their team members to be aggressive instead of being focused on customer experience!!
Advice to Management
Based on the above, are you replacing the right leaders? Are you listening to the folks on the field? Don't set up a guilt trap for sales folks because they are not able to sell a dysfunctional service / product.

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Steelwedge Software.
Interviewed there for a few weeks. Scheduling is sub-optimal and they tend to draw out the process. Found out later they just post and repost positions to collect resumes with no real positions available. Unfair to people to waste their time with no real opportunity.
