Not really geared towards product development.

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Englewood, CO

ProsI work with some very good, friendly, and competent people.
The atmosphere is a bit laid-back in the right ways.
At least at the 'micro' level of management, there's a level of recognition for hard work.

ConsIt's really just a place to work.
They tend to pie-in-the-sky estimate software delivery schedules, expect weekends, and then the raises don't measure-up to the increased revenue figures in the quarterly statements.
No real solid route of advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe most I hear about upper management's concerns, are simple software bugs. There's no real vision of the future outside of acquiring and partnering with other companies.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
