    Pros

    Smart people, fast moving company. Compensation is stock oriented, so timing plays a role.
    Very customer oriented and frugal. Great for customers.

    Cons

    High burn out rate, no measurement of ROI on projects, focus on "buzzword" projects/services
    which do not generate revenue or profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is getting too big and decisions across divisions are at cross purposes. Too many layers and still a "manual" company requiring lots of people power.
