    Worthwhile company

    Sales (Current Employee)

    Pros- Positive environment with good people and overall good intentions and business practices

    Cons- Environment has become dull with such an operational focus; loyalty and motivation have suffered across the board as a result.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStrive to get to know your employees better. Remember you're leading a company and individual teams and that your personal objectives are only part of your responsibility. Certain leadership acting in their own self-interest (commission) with seemingly no concern for other teams/personnel affected.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disappointing at best.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsRemote work options, nice office at HQ, good co-workers

    Cons2 founding owners abruptly left, then the 3rd a year later. Culture has gone downhill fast. Management is only looking out for their own interests with no concern for employee retention, development, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest, promote from within, your employees are your greatest asset, act like it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    STAY AWAY

    Developer (Current Employee)
    Reston, VA

    Pros- Working form remote location (DONT LET THAT FOOL YOU)
    - Please let me know if you can find some Pros

    Cons- No proper communication between team members and higher management
    - Treat employes with respect
    - Share your concern with the employer directly rather than firing him/her without giving any reason
    - I would never recommened this company to anyone.
    - If your full time employes are dumb, close the company and run away rather than hiring someone with lot of dreams to achieve to do a task and fire them.
    - Give Access and other information from the company before questioning a person's work.
    - No wonder this company doesnt get any major clients.
    - I will definitely not recommened this company to anyone who is reading this review.

    Advice to Senior Management- If you dont correct the cons, the company is going down in a few years.
    - Treat employee with respect, no matter if he is full tim or Contractor.
    - Talk to employee directly rather than sending indirect messages.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
