    I have been working at Affinnova full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Technology is cool, co atracts really smart people, fast paced

    Cons

    CEO is mercurial and has "fire everyone" mentality. His direct reports continually turn over (CFO leaving, many CMO's, global head of sales, head of Analytics). Not truly performance driven, especially in sales. Growth has slowed dramatically, co has a hard time recruiting and retaining good people, especially outside the US. Very few women in senior management. Technology isn't "sticky" so company struggling to transition from market research co into being a tech co. There have never been employee reviews so it's hard to get job feedback in order to improve your performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less of an "ivory tower" approach! Get out and talk to a few clients and some employees too! Invest in some mangement and leadership training as many of your current leaders are not experienced. The core technology seems to be quite niche but would be a perfect product suite for a larger MR co to buy. Great time to sell the co.
