Pros

Low pressure environment Relaxed attitude toward performance Good people to work with Hands off management style Last layoff got rid of some dead wood

Cons

Little opportunity for career advancement Our British overlords', excuse me, owners' relentless focus on profitability prevents ESI from making the investment needed to be made in its products and services. CEO repeatedly admits he doesn't know what the future looks like except that it will be different than what it was <insert number> years ago. Pronouncements from senior management leave you wondering: am I dumb or are they just clueless?

Advice to Management

Recognize/promote your top talent before it walks out the door. Make immediate, significant investments in the business and in the employees or revenue and profit will continue to decline.

    Pros

    The people at ESI are great and many feel like it's a real family atmosphere. Nice size cubes, great location, and depending on what team your work on very little micro-managing.

    Cons

    Exec team does not have a pulse on the rest of the company. Decisions are made with little follow-through and hardly any follow-up. Directions change often and the flavor of the week is always what everyone has to drop what their doing to then go work on.

    Advice to Management

    Research, prepare then focus and follow-through - don't just jump, run and then jump to a new idea.
