Pros

Great product, flexible schedules, good company to start your career. You can work with some smart people and learn from them.

Cons

Compensation is below market and raises are minimal. Very political environment. C level management lacks market knowledge and involvement with the personnel. Promotions aren't always based on performance but tenure. Limited career opportunities. Constant change of plans and lack of direction makes it feel like working on fire fighting mode.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Culture has changed since I joined; it used to be much better (fun, energizing). People are not motivated anymore and you can sense that. Take care of the people, listen to them and treat them with RESPECT in every level. For senior management, stop being afraid of the CEO and defend your ideas for once, communication should be both ways not just listening to what he needs to say.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere thanks to lots of young people to keep you on your toes, lots of different job opportunities and ways to climb the ladder, though some moves may be lateral

    Cons

    Pay is pretty low, so it's a good place to start and get experience. Some people move up, but some people just end up leaving and getting paid a lot more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be incentives for the senior people to stay, especially in Tech Support.
