    Weirdest company I ever worked at hands down.

    Pros

    Nice coworkers and nice workout area. The area the company was located in was nice too. It was next to a large shopping mall and restaurants.

    Cons

    Any kind of confidentiality or even the pretense of it does not exist. It wasn't unusual for several others at the company to know who was getting let go AND why long before the actual person was called in and walked out. Any kind of training at this company does not exist either. My training consisted of me getting signed up to read and get quizzed on several SOPs. That was it. My boss never sat down with me for training at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is the year 2014 and not 1964. The company is ran like you'd expect to find one being ran in 1964.

    Very political "Old Boys Network"

    Pros

    Decent products, potential in pipeline, rewarding market space.

    Cons

    Seemingly clueless exec management. HR thrives on politics and gossip and cannot be trusted. Toxic environment. Unwilling to put necessary dollars behind execution of plan. Ability to advance your career there is nearly impossible unless you're part of the club and willing to play the politics game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember why you hired your employees - because of their expertise - NOT to cover your butts.

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere, Small Company, Nice Gym, Great People, Great pay and benefits, free week of during Christmas. Flexibility.

    Cons

    Poor management, Micro managers, They don't want to hear it. Every manager is so busy that they do not have time to lead, Upper management is not really aware of the work load that most employees have to put up with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are on the right path by adding additional head count. However, SAP is going to kill everyone's productivity and you may loose people.

    Show leadership and a vision to the company employees. Work with employees to understand and communicate the needs of the company, products, and customers in stead of assuming these are already known to management.
