    Pros

    Owners are friendly. The staff and management team overall are friendly, helpful, and easy to share some camaraderie. Training and mentoring are readily available, they accept and try to find ways to implement any new ideas you may have to improve business processes. This is nice because you can actually play a part in the establishment of "best practices" and its nice to know that management is willing to listen to what you have to say. Overall a good work/life balance unless you're part of the senior management team - they work all day, literally. Incredibly high expectations which make for good self accountability - not recommended for "free-flow" workers.

    Cons

    Having "friends" at work won't pay the bills and neither will CADsoft. Business structure, commissions structure and business models along with "dedicated' sales staff change far too often. Employees are stuck with whatever crazy organizational chart the management team dreams up of on a wild whim and the business is absolutely bound to whatever crazy changes AUTODESK (software developer) makes its own organization. Ownership completely MICROMANAGES. No real team building or morale boosting efforts are made UNLESS its Christmas or if the sales team exceeds monthly goals in which case they take the sales team out exclusively - or maybe if you're one of the "teachers pets"/"in-crowd". Hard, overflowing work, work, work, work, work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to show your employees you care about them and all the hard work they do.

    Pros

    Employees (Non-Management) are quality individuals and people you would refer to as friends outside of work.

    Cons

    Management style is one of constant micro-management and verbal intimidation with extremely high employee turnover for a company under 25.

    Fact: 15 employees have left or were let go in past 24 months...for a company of 25. Management Style, Positive or Negative?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look in the mirror and be honest with yourself, are the people you interviewed and hired all incapable professionals or could the problem be within?
