Pros

Good people - mass exodus under way
Good technologies/product set
Solid market share; large installed base who will be making upgrade/rip & replace decisions

Cons

Uncertain future
Short sighted senior management; VC/Owner driven
Subjective performance review process; popularity contest rather than pay for performance
Management by checklist...skip levels, check...all hands meeting, check...
Once good compensation packages eroding by nickel and diming

Advice to Management

Take the rose colored glasses off. Pay attention to the employees...the ones who do the work, not the empire builders.

    Pros

    OK technology, great customer base. Good people to work with for the most part. New management team working to trying to shake things up.

    Cons

    Process intensive is being polite. Slow to move, layoffs seem to happen on an annual basis. Sales seems to be exempt this time around, but can't say how long that will last. Lots of Management hires from outside - seems to be little opportunity internally for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    LIsten to the folks in the trenches doing the heavy lifting. Radically accelerate product development - you are not keeping up.


  2. You have the power to manage your career
