I worked at Laker Software full-time

Pros

It may be a niche service they provide, but it is essential to the industry they target. Tremendous flexibility to use/expand existing talents and recommend new technologies, most of which are treated positively, if not implemented outright.

Cons

Communication is minimal unless you are part of the "corporate fold." There is little or no effective management structure and direction is usually given by either the owner or a family member.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Implement a formal management structure and provide more feedback to employees. Make use of consulting companies to help with this. Laker is a fast-growing company with tremendous potential, but is choked by autonomy dictated by a few.

    Pros

    You would be able to explore any new solution without following strict development standard.

    Cons

    Management sticks to old technology for cost saving; employees, except for those family members, are treated as labor workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsiders who qualify should be hired to manage the company and company should establish a set of regulations.

    I have been working at Laker Software full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employees are treated well and compensated generously. Programming staff is encouraged to share their ideas and input. The customer service and management roles are professional and top-notch. The owners of this company are hard-working individuals who openly appreciate, reward and praise hard work.

    Cons

    Occasionally hours can get long (especially around the end of the calendar year).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to encourage hard work and collaboration, and our products will continue to lead the industry!
