    I have been working at Edgenet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for! Encouraged to learn and do things independently but the support is always there when collaboration is necessary. Management is extremely knowledgeable on industry history and trends. Always something new to learn and positive takeaways. Huge opportunity to grow your career.

    Cons

    Industry is lagging in technological advancements that would greatly benefit their business.

    Pros

    At Edgenet you get to have input, and it is valued. There is infinite opportunity, and it is a great time in this company's history. Starting anew and so many great projects to work on. A great place for team players who don't care about titles and just love to get the work done, and enjoying the successes and challenges equally. Relaxed vibe and a new future ahead, this is the place for the bright minds and big thinkers.

    Cons

    You might get a little jab from co-workers if you dress up really nice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing forward, and continue to do a great job managing the dynamic new Edgenet in a way that provides employee freedom to innovate and nimble adaptations to the business needs, while continuing to provide sound business thinking and strategy.

    I have been working at Edgenet full-time

    Pros

    Edgenet has always had one thing going for them… the people. It’s been a rough couple of years, but with new executives, a business model that works, and a new outlook on opportunities, Edgenet has a chance for real success. Previously, it was easy to get lost in the company or trapped in a niche. With the change in ownership, all employees have been asked to voice their opinions, make change, and do something bigger and better. Ideas and opinions are welcome and actually encouraged, no matter what level you are at. The technology is cutting edge. There aren’t many companies that do what we do. And I honestly believe we are better than our competition. We have products to be proud of. Office-wide functions and social events are allowing employees to be recognized for their accomplishments and network outside of their teams.

    Cons

    Edgenet is still a small, private company which comes with its own challenges. A lot is expected of each employee. This may not be a “con” for most people, but for those who only want to work from the hours of 8-5 and put in minimal effort – this company is probably not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the mentality and openness you created. Employees trust you, respect your leadership, and appreciate the new direction. Continue allowing your employees to grow and be a part of new projects. This will improve morale, keep people motivated, and allow your employees to perform at their highest potential.

    I have been working at Edgenet full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is small enough that politics and red tape aren't an issue. Everyone has a say and voice in decisions. Employees are enabled to benefit company growth.

    Cons

    Still in transition stage so employees are still unsure of structure.

    Advice to Management

    Enable employees to contribute to growth of company by listening to customers. All product lines have a opportunity of advancement in this arena by listening.

    Pros

    Middle management supportive of employees Decent benefits Good co-workers for the most part Decent computer hardware No strict dress code

    Cons

    Incompetent senior management Incompetent sales/marketing department Nepotism Lack of focus about products and services offered Lack of coordination and consistency between offices In-fighting between offices Lack of communication about company status

    Advice to Management

    It's time for senior management and sales/marketing to be replaced. Too many good people have lost jobs there, while highly-paid executives who perform no useful purpose are still employed there. Edgenet should have done a better job in the transition to eliminate references to "Big Hammer" and get systems/processes standardized across the company. There are multiple development tracking systems, and if a particular office didn't want to use a system being used by another office, it wasn't questioned. It may be too late for this company to recover from its past.

    Pros

    They have a couple good ideas and a data stranglehold on Home Depot and Lowes; if you can wait long enough, a good company may acquire them.

    Cons

    They basically have only two major customers, Home Depot and Lowes; each of these customers appear very disgruntled with Edgenet and Big Hammer. Cooperation between Edgenet and Big Hammer is precarious at best; even though Edgenet acquired Big Hammer; they do not seem to be in charge. Edgenet has no solid development methodology and releases software directly from development because they do not have a testing environment, this always results in "melt-down" conditions when new software versions are released.

    Advice to Management

    You aren't the innovators that you think you are, anybody can build a flat database; stailize your business relationships with qulaity software products and new releases, top notch service and professionalism.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Perks are ok, they feed you pretty well and throw good parties and picnics. Good bug report system. IT support is good and attends to IT tech calls pretty face, Programmers have nice equipment (monitors, PCs Ect.). Takes care of its employees when employees are traveling for the company(Nice Hotel, generous food allowance, nice Car). Upper Management treats employees pretty well in passing. Decent work environment, nice clean newer desks and workspaces. Gives employees bonuses based on company performance, and also a very small Christmas bonus. Stock Options are not great, but decent. Sponsors Toastmasters and other programs for some employees.

    Cons

    Minimum working week 45-50 hours, No True Lunch Hour. Working weekends and evenings at home is expected. No room for growth. Micromanaging is the principal management style. Basically a Cube Farm where programmers punch out proprietary code for 10+ hours a day. No learning opportunities, this proprietary technology traps employees with the company because no other outfit uses its technology. Work environment forces a "Cut throat" mentality where all other employees are against each other, management promotes this to increase competition. Dress code for programmers, shirt and slacks mandatory. Improper or ill performing working tools and software. Terrible place to work overall.

    Advice to Management

    Allow innovation, and promote better people. Retain Talent. Get rid of the Director of Services.

    I worked at Edgenet full-time

    Pros

    The new management team has introduced change into this potentially successful company but word on the street is the management team doesn't have a cohesive strategy for all lines of their business. Here's to hoping the new management team learns from the mistake of the old management team and develops Edgenet into the powerhouse that it could be. If they do, they could be a force to recon with, if not will they fall into the trap of the old management team.

    Cons

    After change in management team it seems that the management team leads by their emotions and not by a business strategy. I hope all the best to the new management team but seems like they may fall victim to some of the old management teams ways.
