    I worked at Cataphora full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly, collegial, creative, innovative, and smart.

    Cons

    Upper management could be difficult to understand and ivory towerish. Tech people couldn't communicate with sales people or understand them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They already did the right thing by selling off the division they treated as an unwanted stepchild.

  5.  

    Interesting projects and a flexible work atmosphere, but I wasn't crazy about the management atmosphere.

    I have been working at Cataphora

    Pros

    Interesting projects, flexible hours, and many of the people were quite nice. The company seems open to internal innovation.

    Cons

    The atmosphere bothered me - I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but there seems to be a degree of chilliness and intimidation within the company. I also wasn't crazy about all the company's stated goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the atmosphere more happy, less intimidating.

    I worked at Cataphora

    Pros

    I think one of the advantages would have to be hot having to deal with a bureaucracy in larger companies. The company is generally young. Some really great intelligent and unique individuals work at Cataphora.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company treats many of its employees poorly. "This is a start-up" is generally not an excuse for lack of professionalism. The "company culture" is generally not positive and more of a "hold down the fort, its us or them" mentality.

    Questions that are important to ask ANY employer: (1) How many people have "moved on" (voluntarily or not) from the company in the past year? (2) Is working towards "career goals" considered reasonable at your company? (3) Can I speak with a colleague of yours about the working environment?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too far gone!
