    Pros

    As a small company, there is plenty of opportunity to jump in. Teammates have good intentions and want to make a change. The market is ripe with opportunity.

    Cons

    Upper management is undeceive, no clear strategy, tend to chase shiny objects that lead nowhere, but wasted time and frustration. Tend to bring in talented people, but ignore fresh ideas and best practices. Tend to shackle employees to existing ways of doing business. Technology, user interface and workflow out of date. Fail to address existing customer needs resulting in a loss of customers and revenue. Unless you are in dire need of a paycheck, stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Take off the blinders, stop believing your own hype and listen to the advise of employees you bring in. You are getting left behind for an obvious reason: poor strategy, poor execution, poor management.

    Pros

    Products still have potential, perhaop you could be the catalyst.

    Cons

    Company's technology is not keeping up with the market. If you have skills with older software and middle ware (2001-2005 era), you will be a good fit here.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your middle managers; word is getting around they they are not as professional as you think they are.

    Pros

    Good opportunities to get into and pursue a field. Staff and upper management are good to work with.

    Cons

    Strategically trying hard yet getting left behind by competitors with fresh client-facing technology. Upper managers appear unconcerned by negative effects middle managers have on staff. Good benefits for a small company.


  9. If you like to put on blinders, sit in meetings all day and accomplish nothing -- this is the place for you!

    Pros

    Some decent, hard working people who somehow can put up with management who can not get anything done. Decent Benefits for a small company.

    Cons

    Senior Management team is as old, outdated and out of touch as the products they are trying to sell. Big talkers and execution. 9 out of 10 people who work there are "management." The place has a revolving door. The are notoriously low paying and don't give raises so typically they get employees who don't have a job and they continue search and leave as soon as they find another with more reasonable pay.

    Advice to Management

    Time to sell the business to younger, smarter, hungrier people and stop embarrassing yourselves.

    Pros

    There's a few diamonds in the rough working here that would make great additions to you network. If you like wearing many different hats and working miracles with a ridiculously small budget, you could be happy here. If you are a worker bee that never questions anything and has mediocre to no marketable skills, you may find this place comfortable

    Cons

    The second you rock the boat and criticize the truly terrible management you'll be labeled a non-team player and you'll be let go. If you don't already know best practices, you will learn some bad habits here, and if you do know best practices, your frustration will be get you fired. Seriously, life is to short to waste it here. You can find any number of better places to work for the same pay since they don't bother to retain their employees with competitive pay/benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Sell this company to someone younger, smarter, and more ambitious and go move to Boca Raton.

    Pros

    I gained a lot of experience here and found my fellow employees quite supportive from day one. They went out of their way to make me feel at home. The job I had could at times be stressful, but who's kidding who... that's the nature of the IT beast. I found that the need to solve sometimes complex issues for demanding customers to be an invironment in which I thrived. I almost always felt that upper level management was behind me even during those chrunch times.

    Cons

    Like all the places else Ihave worked there are some fellow employees that are noit supportive and can be disruptive... but management at Edmin was wise enough to see these problems and deal with them. AS far as being short on resources... sometimes that was true, but in these times I am afraid that this is the rule rather than the exception no matter where one works.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you do!
