Pros

Compared to other companies, the sheer volume of talent is incredible. Very challenging environment, but ton of opportunity to shine! The culture is amazing - everyone is empowered to raise concerns and given a chance to act on them. Imagine having call center employees voice an issue openly and candidly to C-level executives . . . and have those execs take them seriously rather than pay lip-service. And everyone's bonus is based on the same criteria (compared to other companies where only the elite get bonuses).

Cons

Benefits not as nice as other companies in the area; vacation/sick/personal days to manage versus just PTO.

Advice to Management

Speed to market is important, but not the only strategy; continue to focus at closing gaps and solidifying the foundation created over the past 2 years.

    Pros

    Base salary plus high commissions; professional work atmosphere; Laid-out advancement paths

    Cons

    Sometimes unrealistic expectations by management (Number of cold calls and amount of information gathered. Definitely NOT an "8-5" job. Expected to be in office by 7:30am and would regularly not get home until 7pm.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on training and supporting new employees better

    Pros

    Great people. Lots of mobility if you work hard. Many professional growth opportunities (Six Sigma classes, their own chapter of Toast Masters, networking groups)

    Cons

    They deploy under tested, unfinished products. Going through a difficult transition to a new product set that not many people internally seem to understand well.

    Advice to Management

    Great job in many ways. You hire wonderful people to work with. You need to end the 'speed to market" approach because it hurts the brand by releasing products that are not fully baked, and are poorly defined and articulated.
