    Pros

    regular pay check, good friends, hard to think of any really
    Christmas Party

    Cons

    No stock options being offered even almost 1 year after IPO
    20% to 30% below average market SALARIES
    Management team very incompetent.....Directors who have no idea on how to lead people....
    Just promoted internally very incompetent individuals for sales manager roles....friends of friends...drinking buddies etc....other highly qualified internal candidates never got a shot.
    Too much of a Country Club atmosphere within the Senior Managers and VP's group.

    Advice to Management

    Take your stock option payouts and go on vacation...hire an entirely new team from CEO down....including most Directors.

    Pros

    Great product (customer love it!), growing rapidly (exciting!)
    Engaged employees (most, though not all)
    Fast paced and challenging work environment
    Smart, intelligent team mates (dare I say brilliant)
    Smart executive team

    Cons

    Company is going through growing pains as it expands since going public. Some executives still challenged with people management (though to their credit, they're working on it).

    Advice to Management

    Act on feedback employees provide as it's legitimate. Listening just doesn't cut it.
