Chaos at best, really out to lunch most of the time

I have been working at Ensighten full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Decent starting salary and benefits, as sad as it sounds "free food" is dépassé in the valley these days so it is tough to consider that a benefit. Work with cool technology and adequate, although cramped, conditions.

Cons

Management is screwy, odd decisions with no real vision or gameplan(at least not one that was shared or articulated companywide). Complete shift in company direction without rhyme or reason and then an acquisition?? Makes it tough to stand behind and be enthusiastic about what we are building when we have no idea what is coming next.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More transparency, less arrogance. Figure out what this company wants to do and execute on it. Hitting a moving target is extremely difficult, more so when shrouded in the fog of internal war.

    *Management recognizes hard work and promotes accordingly
    *A variety of company outings are scheduled each week with the entire company invited

    *Excellent compensation package compared to other companies of all sizes in the area

    Cons

    *Current office is very cramped (but we're moving to a new office shortly)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course. Focusing on customer satisfaction and new development will keep the company in the forefront for years to come.

    A walking talking contradiction. Direction of the company lacks logic let alone vision.

    I have been working at Ensighten full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    A decent benefits package and a salary that's commensurate with the industry are the only pros I can come up with.

    Cons

    Complete and utter lack of logic by purchasing a competitor. What a joke and a complete waste of VC money. Management is running in different directions and is completely out of touch with most of the employees. Middle management is running scared and has no idea how to manage in the first place. Lack of focus with regard to the Engineering department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was potential but it's apparent that is long gone. Random layoffs and slashing of head count does not make for a fun work environment.
