Pros

- Great work culture - open communication
- Very little micro-management or internal politics
- Experienced, passionate senior management team
- Access to strong sales tools to help optimize prospecting capabilities
- Strong professional services and solution engineering teams (but they need more headcount!)
- Nice benefits; complementary food/drinks/snacks

Cons

- Weak process controls - i.e. order management controlled via archaic home-grown ticket system requiring multiple entries of same data to communicate within different departments
- Limited career growth opportunity outside sales. Wastes a lot of time.
- At times, product team seem disinterested in supporting new emerging sales opportunities that require extra time on their side to scope an appropriate custom solution, slowing the sales cycle.
- Weak marketing support into strategic areas of emerging business focus. Wants to expand reach to Enterprise verticals, but still focuses majority marketing activity on traditional media/entertainment markets.

Advice to Management

Look to increase investments into other areas in the organization (i.e. marketing, order processing/account management controls) as strategic areas of opportunity to help drive business growth and customer retention. Expand brand awareness activities into new emerging markets - especially into Enterprise markets that have a high sales expectation around them.

    Pros

    A few clever people at the company

    Cons

    Poorly managed & a culture of blame permeates. Products launched with insufficient testing & in constant need of 'repair'.
