Pros

New executive team understands the business and is creating a solution that is needed. New CEO and VP of Engineering make a good team.

Cons

Company is overly funded and has a lot of debt. Being in hardware, their profit margin is less than a pure software company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep innovating. Keep close to Apple and iOS. Outsource your Android efforts.

    Pros

    Great people - smart, supportive, title isn't as important as the ideas you contribute, great work/life balance

    Cons

    We have more ideas then we can deliver upon. It's great to be ambitious, but we need to deliver on the big ideas and promises quicker.

    Pros

    Really interesting product for the education market.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Employees divided into two classes--directors or above or not directors or above. Poor communication between the two with the former unable or unwilling to listen to the latter. Corrosive politics. Lots of turnover. Lots of bad decision-making leading to expensive product delays, stressful work environment, and low morale. Open communication perilous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the business and stabilize, strengthen, and streamline the management team.
