    Pros

    Really great management team since we were taken private
    Much more focused on the solutions rather than discrete features
    Lots of smart people with great personalities
    Working on the some really cool technology
    Very exciting market to be in
    Fantastic financial results in the past 12 months

    We went through a very difficult transition in late 2011 through mid 2012. Things have really improved since with stability, morale and new energy

    Cons

    There is more work than people. Too bad we can't hire more people to address some of the great opportunities in this market space
    Sometimes we don't spend enough time prioritizing the really important work and it is hard to know if you are working on the most important thing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We had so many re-organizations from 2010 to 2012. Things have finally stabilized over the past 9-12 months which has greatly improved things.
