A potentially great place to work, but struggling with growth.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsGreat people work there! Genuinely friendly, smart and caring.
Good work life balance. Easy to work from home if you have a sick child or an appointment with a repairman, although the general policy is no telecommuting.
A great product for their niche market compared to their competitors.
The company is willing to change process and organizational structure to improve quality. Even relatively large change are implemented quickly with the attitude that if it doesn't work, they'll change it again. This is refreshing when coming from a traditional government or large corporate culture.

ConsIn their recent growth they've lost a lot of the small company culture. In particular, HR policies are now implemented "by the book" without regard to the individual. It seems the risk of "liability" is now more important than the culture.
There is a often a lack of accountability internally when commitments are not met. This can put the customer facing teams in a difficult position.
They have another challenging 12 months ahead to really catch up from the growth..

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are disadvantages to working for small companies; lower salaries, resource and cash flow challenges, lack of opportunity for advancement, etc. The advantages of the small company are a) working with a higher percentage of top notch talent, b) the ability to change things that don't work, c) the personal culture of not just being a cog in the machine. Colorado Customware does great job at the first two, but is losing ground on the culture.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
