I worked at Edgenet

Pros

Perks are ok, they feed you pretty well and throw good parties and picnics. Good bug report system. IT support is good and attends to IT tech calls pretty face, Programmers have nice equipment (monitors, PCs Ect.). Takes care of its employees when employees are traveling for the company(Nice Hotel, generous food allowance, nice Car). Upper Management treats employees pretty well in passing. Decent work environment, nice clean newer desks and workspaces. Gives employees bonuses based on company performance, and also a very small Christmas bonus. Stock Options are not great, but decent. Sponsors Toastmasters and other programs for some employees.

Cons

Minimum working week 45-50 hours, No True Lunch Hour. Working weekends and evenings at home is expected. No room for growth. Micromanaging is the principal management style. Basically a Cube Farm where programmers punch out proprietary code for 10+ hours a day. No learning opportunities, this proprietary technology traps employees with the company because no other outfit uses its technology. Work environment forces a "Cut throat" mentality where all other employees are against each other, management promotes this to increase competition. Dress code for programmers, shirt and slacks mandatory. Improper or ill performing working tools and software. Terrible place to work overall.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow innovation, and promote better people. Retain Talent. Get rid of the Director of Services.

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Great benefits
    Competitive pay
    Great co-workers

    Leaving aside the sr. management executives, the overall employee base is talented, professional and fun to work with. Company provides very decent benefits and perks.

    Cons

    No professional career growth
    Bleak long term prospects
    Senior Management team lacks strategy, focus and execution skills
    Nepotism

    Company had great promise, very good employees, great customers and a viable strategy.
    The lack of focus, inability of the sr. management team to keep in check nepotism and placing higher stakes and wrong bets has brought it to its end run.

    Customers are leaving, employees are leaving, some have been cut off while retaining very highly paid executives means their burn rate is going to destroy the value and the company soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its time for entire sr. management team to leave. Get in fresh competent and skilled team
