    Pros

    Great, innovative products. Management is very open to new ideas. Beginning to see sales growth as a result of all the changes. New VP of Sales is very strong. Fun, friendly and smart co-workers. Interesting work. Healthy, growing industry.

    Cons

    Had to weather a few storms to get to where we are now. Still a few negative people around, but they seem to be leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep employees informed. Communication is very important at this point in our growth.

    Pros

    - We're given a high level of ownership in our roles.
    - Collaborative and innovative culture.
    - Everyone I work with is engaged and enthusiastic about the direction of the company.
    - Stock price will soar with anticipated growth.

    Cons

    - You must be a self-starter to be successful here. "Con" for some, "Pro" for others.

    Advice to Management

    - We enjoy having regular exposure to the C-level.
    - Please continue with "All hands on deck" meetings.

    Pros

    If you want to move to Texas, this place is for you. Otherwise, if you can get into the Gupta division, you might have some hope.

    Cons

    Flawed strategic vision, minimal knowledge of software industry, unable to execute business plans, lack of sales, lack of senior leadership, poor middle management. Morale is non-existent outside of Texas, toxic culture. Hiring is based on a good-old-boy network that consistently hires poor performers.

    Advice to Management

    Abdicate. Let someone with a clue start over fresh.

    Pros

    Positive energy throughout the company. Clear strategic vision. Impressive and trustworthy leadership. Co-workers friendly and intellectually stimulating. Creativity encouraged. Great products. Aggressive.

    Cons

    Not the place to work if you are just looking for a job. Those that don't share the passion for our work may feel like outsiders and don't seem to work out too well.

    Advice to Management

    With the growth we are experiencing, please continue to hire talented individuals. Don't lower expectations to fill a void. Appreciate the flexible work schedule as long as getting the job done atmosphere.

    Pros

    Interesting Work, good pay, good benefits, get to work with variety of clients in many industries and in different countries. Exposure to different technologies and applications.

    Cons

    Downturn in revenue and profit has led to constant reorganization and layoffs. Tend to hire management based on past friendships as opposed to actual skill and capabilities.

    Treat employees with respect and try to be more pro-active in understanding skills and value of employees to the organization.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Everyone works hard and parties hard.

    Cons

    After the merger, upper management does not know what to do at all. They fired all the sales guys and then complained that there's no work for the rest of the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take over a company that you don't know how to run.
