Pros

* Friendly staff and co-workers
* Flexible working hours (days off, sick days, work remotely the ONLY HUGE plus!)
* Ping-pong table, arcade, kitchen
* Views to the San Francisco bay
* Parking lot

Cons

* Low pay compared to other tech companies
* Awkward location if you need public transportation
* NO CAREER prospects... Let me repeat: NO CAREER prospects.
* MAJORITY of employees cultivates an old-school culture: lack of innovation and leadership.
* Unqualified employees for the job (mixed academic background for different positions).
* Lack of integrating new investments (Separate divisions lead to confusion and there's no "one-team" in this company).
* "Talents" are the ones who sell and do customer service. Marketing, Engineering, Legal are NEVER recognized as having talents or quarterly awards.

Advice to Management

* Recognize the true talents of your company.
* Integrate the divisions.
* Invest in R&D, do not send core products to India
* Hire people with specific degrees to the job (Statistics for Analytics, Engineering/Computer Science for Engineering, etc.)

    Pros

    Get to develop tools that support software development and software teams. This means that CollabNet folks often use their own tools as part of their job, which allows them to understand the customer in a deeper way than at many jobs. You also get to work with a great team.

    Cons

    Company somewhat lives in the shadow of other firms in the field of development team tools. They need to find a way to stake-out their own position in the world.
