    Current Employee - Sales Team Member - US
    Current Employee - Sales Team Member - US

    Pros

    - New investment in company (public news - January 2014) means potential for revitalizing products
     - Flexible hours
     - Ability to work from home

    Cons

    - Underinvestment in chief product & weak engineering management has allowed it to fall dangerously behind competition in certain respects
     - Confused strategy re: integrating velocity and enterprise business, and re: entering devops
     - There are "dead weight" people in certain key positions that execs seem oblivious to despite negative feedback from many frustrated staffers
     - Fresh investment in engineering to improve products will take time to pay off, but execs demand sales improvement NOW
     - Sales compensation plan for 2014 came out in mid-May with significant changes retroactive to Jan 1
     - No credible career growth path

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more sober look at the performance of products, departments, and key individuals. Be willing to cut or seriously revamp things that haven't been working-- even if they are products or people you personally brought into the company years ago. Be realistic about how much new investment is required (esp. to enter a new market space) and how long it will take to come to fruition.
