    Pros

    Direct management, coworkers and essentially everyone from VP and down I have respect for and am able to work well with. Office culture at the moment is relaxed and friendly, with enough structure to keep things rolling (that may change soon, it's hard to say.) I'm challenged on a regular basis when I can get in touch with the resources I need in other locations.
    3 weeks of vacation is nice.

    Cons

    The Executive level of leadership has made it clear that they are profiting at our expense. Salaries are not competitive with the skillsets which they're hiring. They claim "industry standard", but misleadingly compare themselves to a niche market, not other Software Companies, which is what they are.
    A move of office from NH to MA is causing a huge bump in cost of living, smaller working spaces, and the addition of state income tax on top of that. This means that once we move, I'll be making less than I did when I started. That's unacceptable. It was brought to the attention of the Executive level before raises were handed out, and no compensation was offered for this increase which is a direct result of their choice to relocate. I feel disposable, and unappreciated in light of this.
    On going through the proper channels, the response I was given was essentially "We don't like it either, but there's nothing we can do". That's not confidence inspiring.
    I personally find a Software Company with a no e-commuting policy to be very disappointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to be more than an average company that people leave after 2 years, then pay more than average. You've certainly stressed how well the company is doing financially, and seem to believe the company is better than average. So treat your employees as better than average.
