    Pros

    Best in class VAR
    Strong Growth
    Predictable Business

    Cons

    Professional Services is subpar
    Constant turnover
    Constant leadership change
    Inadequate market comparison salary
    No training opportunities
    Sales teams are no disciplined or trained (Wild West mentality)

    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
