    Work hard, but enjoy it!

    Manager (Former Employee) Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    ProsGreat commitment to technology. Develop to international standards. Great people and camaraderie. Managers trust the teams to do a good job and this creates a culture of learning and knowledge sharing.

    ConsStrategic direction needs clear communication.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more. The employees are knowledgable and innovative. Explain strategy.

    Good temporary experience, not a career move

    Sales Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsGood exposure across diverse teams in a dynamic environment. Leading edge technology (at the time). Varied responsibilities, so get good foundation in technology and business.

    ConsFinancial problems impacted customer confidence to buy. Constantly changing environment in terms of business direction and personnel changes. Difficult to compete in same space as IBM, Microsoft etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on doing better market research to drive core business direction. Evaluate customer successes to influence future markets to pursue.

    Not sure how much longer they can hold on

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits and salary were generous, but I am overall glad not to be tethered to this sinking ship any longer.

    ConsCritical Path was once a market darling with hundreds of employees worldwide. They have fallen significantly due to mis-management. I suppose some kudos must be given to the current team for trying to hold things together. Credit for that also must go to the Asian investors who against all apparent sense have continued to dump money into the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAt this point, simply keep on trying to hone your focus. You've shed all of the extraneous business interests picked up during your glory days and gained cash from that - discover who CPTH really is and push that.

    Doing OK

    Administration (Current Employee) Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    ProsFlexibility in the day to day running. Managers are generally good. Stress levels are very low, and it seems like each department is working well with each other.

    ConsHR is not among the best in the world. Don't quite understand what the future will bring for the company as our CEO isn't quite sure himself I guess. We don't often have team building nights out but in all fairness when we do there is no limit on spending.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are generally doing a good job. We're all treated equally which is brilliant... Please try and give us some new news when giving us the yearly feedback / update calls...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
