Pros

Some really smart people to work with across the teams. Benefits are great, support staff is helpful.

Cons

There is a real lack of technical leadership in the company. The teams are working on their own projects and don't collaborate much. This means the same work is done over and over again for different projects. Upper management likes the idea of being innovative and doing new things, but doesn't back it up with the time or resources.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the company on-board working towards a single goal. Figure out why there is no real technical leadership and find people to lead this charge. If you hire people who want to work on new technology and don't give them something interesting to work on, they'll leave.

    Pros

    early days there was strong sense of team, little bureaucracy and process which at times confused things but at least you could get stuff done and make an impact.

    Cons

    Micromanagement...no clear leadership...execs involve themselves in details which could be managed by entry level/junior employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stronger executive team with more strategic scope.
