    Pros

    You often get a lot of freedom to manage your work because they are starving for employees. There are a lot of good employees that are fairly intelligent and usually helpful. The health benefits are pretty good considering it is relatively small company. New CEO as of Q4 2014 seems to have the right mindset. He jettisoned several managers and employees that needed to go.

    Cons

    The biggest issue is that the venture capitalists that own part of the company have and will likely continue to suck the revenue from the company. The unusual arrangement of venture capitalists and VPs that partially own the company is toxic and explains why the company has done little of value for its customers since it started, allowing the VPs to coast along.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to fire VPs. They've been there long enough proven they have nothing to contribute. There is management under them that would better serve the company. Reinvest in the company and the employees. They don't expect an amazing salary, but it's almost embarrassingly low.

    Pros

    The people are fantastic, Purchasing, Engineering, Sales, and Shop Floor Personnel, not one complaint about them. The product line is fantastic, interesting work, solid customer orders and ability to provide the customer with a specialized product they require for the application.

    Cons

    Upper management didn't seem to grasp what was actually happening and was unwilling to listen to the opinion of those who do grasp the issues. Work load is quite large, lack of support from upper management. Constantly requested to focus on new projects, while still maintaining / making progress on current projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the people. Build a relationship with them, not everyone's ideas are perfect, but those who deal with the issues everyday know what the issues are.
