Smart about technology, less so about business

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsGood exposure to a variety of engineering technologies. Some top-notch engineering talent in terms of both technical ability and customer orientation. Some sales people are actually technically knowledgeable about products. Relatively flat organization; company is small enough so that you can have substantial impact in a given area.

ConsInternal loyality pursued to the point of cronyism. Lack of willingness to question whether people are being employed in appropriate areas of competence. Lack of respect shown between employees in high-pressure circumstances. Bureaucracy is out of proportion with the size of the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that process improvement and product development initiatives cannot be executed simultaneously with no impact on already strained resources. Don't ask for employee opinions unless you are willing to seriously consider the answers and act on them. Reform the product management function so that it maximizes the probability of building the right tool at the right time.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
