    Pros

    Really nice people are working there

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on making shareholders happy and not doing what is right for the long-term success of the company.
    Top heavy management (too many chiefs and not enough indians)
    Poor business model that relies heavily on the whims of other companies/partners in order to keep them in business
    Agile development methodology with no serious QA and a lack of understanding/committment to doing what it takes to develop a better product
    Virtually all development was outsourced to India with poor communication in between
    Lack of communication between levels of management
    Employees afraid to voice their concerns for fear of management repercussions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your business model to be more in line with directly reaching out to consumers and stop trying to cut corners in order to increase your profit margins and look good with shareholders. Remember, you're a small company and you're already doing too much with what little you have. In the long run, if you destroy your company's morale for the sake of a .05% increase in revenue, was it worth it?

    I worked at EZShield full-time

    Pros

    Some bright people and diamonds in and amongst the crazies. Excellent customer service and fulfillment on products. People have balanced lives. The office is empty by 5pm because people go home to their families and their lives outside of the company. There are spurts of work with long hours and travel, but there is flexibility in general to balance work and life. Great benefits package and the programs designed to support, acknowledge and reward people are top-notch.

    Cons

    Lacks management vision and leadership. There is no visionary or evangelist for the company and little differentiation from competitors. While the CEO is a good guy, he is the wrong leader for this company at this time. They need a Driver CEO that can inspire and lead. The current CEO is better suited for an established company working in maintenance mode, not one that is trying to figure out it's place in the market and needs a clear vision of what is possible. The personalities, bi-coastal offices and emotional and organizational baggage from what has gone on before has created an incredibly divisive, dysfunctional organization that makes it hard to accomplish tasks and holds the company back from succeeding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to find someone who is actually an advocate and visionary in identity management to provide credibility and direction for the company. Doesn't have to be the CEO, just someone that is passionate and knowledgeable that can serve as the EZShield evangelist. At the very least, create more levels and empower those with responsibility. Having everyone as a Director is a joke and devalues the titles and demotivates those that truly are working at a Director level.
