Not a good place to work, and not enough substantive and meaningful work, run by fear and trembling

    It is all about the company and very little about the employee.

    Pros

    Management knows the way to get the best profit for the company. Great sales force that gets the products sold to the customers.

    Cons

    Non-Silicon Valley working culture. One way communication from the top. Recognition is minimal. No performance review. Employees are not shared with the company direction and vision. Upper management doesn't seem to be interested in employee feedback. Employees are assigned with tasks as it goes and told to work on them with no question asked, and yet, direction changes often and is confusing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Besides selling the product, spend some time to listen more to all employee feedback.

    Pros

    The technology is very interesting
    Company founders continue to invest large sums into R&D
    Financial results reflect a wide market acceptance for product offerings
    Little to no real competition

    Cons

    Very poor work environment
    Account management is ... just bring me the deals no matter what territory or product line
    Account management is ... Do your five visits a week and 2 proposals and you are a good AE otherwise expect to be openly harrassed in front of sales team during weekly sales calls
    If you enjoy micro-management then this is the place to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strategies that worked so well at the start-up phase are no longer applicable as a global software player. Company can be doing 5x more revenue if current Senior Management is replaced by capable professionals that know from experience how to run a global software company.
