    Pros

    Free fruit. Coworkers are helpful and friendly. There are(were?) a lot of talented it people.

    Cons

    Employees with talent/experience have been leaving at a fast pace, and the skills and experience they had are not being replaced. The company seems to be promoting finger pointing and ass covering, rather than risk taking and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out why the talented people keep leaving and stop it. We are a technology company, and its much cheaper to keep talent than it is to find it.

    Pros

    Great benefits -- good pricing of health benefits. New executive management team has potential. Good atmosphere to work in -- building is nice and space is pleasing to work in.

    Cons

    Bring back the 401k match! Better communication -- celebrate successes. Employees should be finding out from company not reading about it in a press release.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that change isn't easy but it's inevitable.
