Pros

Good staff, interesting business plan, flexible work time.

Cons

Sales seems to be the decision maker as to what the company needs for IT, and no matter what the IT team recommends, if it is shiny and new, sales wants it, regardless of the potential impact to the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Long range planning and sticking with a plan, instead of throwing a lot of ideas at a wall to see what sticks.

    Pros

    We just hired Brad Garlinghouse as our new CEO and the buzz couldn't be any better! Brad is focused and committed to leading YSI to new levels! Super excited!

    Cons

    We are coming out of a time of uncertainty. It's a "wait and see" situation now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constant communication! Keep it coming!
