    Pros

    Good culture, great people to work with. Had good products and good development groups.

    Cons

    Offshore everything. Cutting cost always resulted in reorganization demands and loss of traction towards release goals. Low value placed on long term domain knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on product and market strength.

    I have been working at Consona full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good in-work activities, clean office, decent management, some innovative ways to improve company culture

    Cons

    Terrible compensation, work-over-family approach, no benefits like company matching, strict sick day policy

    Advice to Management

    Please look more to companies like google for company culture. We attempt to improve our company culture, but I don't feel like we follow through.

    Pros

    Great growth opportunities for advancement especially when the company does acquisitions. Communication around company performance and goals and achievements is very empowering.

    Cons

    Don't really have any other than it is a real strong culture around performance and if you are one who like political based cultures than you should look elsewhere, might be a negative for some but is a real positive for me because I have worked in very political cultures and hated it.

    Advice to Management

    Do more acquisitions, the career growth is great for everyone that performs when we do these.

    Pros

    Seems to have a niche market, so competion is limited.

    Cons

    Turnaround and information sharing is sparse and limited.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate your organization tighter. The loose coupling of the business is makes it difficult to be effective.


  8. Up till the 'merger' with CDC (and the resulting beheadings) which became Aptean, I loved my job there.

    Pros

    Because of the acquisitions it allows for individual growth. Great people to work with and always giving 100% for each other, if not for the company. Leadership that's been with the organization for along time, easy to communicate with because they know you.

    Cons

    Acquisitions also can cause disruption. Being owned by a VC has it's draw backs, but on the whole hasn't been too detrimental. Wages in some areas below current averages. It would be nice to see some benefits taken away because of the economy returned.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through on plans and what you say. More visibility would be nice too.
