    Pros

    Cutting edge ideas, Great minds to share ideas with.

    Cons

    Zero investment in Infrastructure and R&D. Software engineering staff were literally cobbling together junk equipment that most normal companies would have thrown away in order to have working development systems. Management was more concerned about the bottom line than their employees and customers. Support staff in IT and Systems Engineering were completely overloaded with work trying to keep outdated and broken hardware and software functional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept that your engineering staff is "different" than your sales people and give us room and budgets to be able to function. Invest in your ideas with real budgets and real research. People can't create a great product out of thin air.
