Pros

It's an established company so should be pretty stable; treats employee okey; comp is comparable to other not-so-hot companies

Cons

The field is not growing much and lack of moneitization potential, thus has little growth prospective

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to diversification and technology explorarion, and employee growth and furfillment aspects too

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are up there (compared to other companies here), so that rocks.
    Work life balance here is actually fantastic. I've rarely had to sacrifice time with my family. The management here is quite skilled at keeping resources working reasonable hours.
    Amazing colleagues

    Cons

    Very limited room to move up (if at all). The ceiling is not far
    No future visibility. I couldn't tell you what''s coming up in 3 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forced vacations, not cool. Make promotions happen, it's amazing how much it could motivate someone.
    Spend some money on your employees, it doesn't have to be much. Donuts on mondays. Beer and c hips on Friday afternoons.
