Pros

Flexible working schedules, great PTO structure, decent pay, nice friendly working environment. We enjoy some of the perks of working in a building that was built in the tech hay day, however cut backs within the company are making them fewer and far between.

Cons

No real advancement opportunities. Being in the IT industry, they have their wallets under lock and key. Downsizing and controlling costs are the #1 priorities. Expect to keep your job if you're competent and do what is asking, just don't expect to advance as a result of hard work

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in your employees. Its sometimes easy to forget who works their butts off to earn you your profits, and while you're spending money on new company acquisitions, and upper management summit retreats, try not to forget the employees that made it all possible.

    Cons

    Professional Services is subpar

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your benefits package
    Improve compensation for professional services (or you will always have turnover)
    Train middle management to be actual managers with proper management education and training
    Stop making organization changes and alignments every year like clock work

    Pros

    -Flexible and friendly environment with great co workers
    -Easy going life
    -New technologies introduced so might be able to learn a lot
    -"Cow boy" style coding.

    Cons

    -No Documentation at all, so if you are ready to figure out everything from project setup, configuration requirement and the project technical setup all by your self with out any help, than you should be able to live there
    -Company is made up of many take overs so there may be lot of communication gap between different taken over teams and many managers so sometime its difficult to manage fund for them
    -Unable to retain employees sometimes so high attrition rate for senior positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Should learn to follow proper and transparent procedures and business model so that resources and projects are well managed
