Pros

Very flexible with family life, and understanding when issues come up. Senior staff is very sociable and listens but also understands they can't think of it all and require others to pitch in and come up with ideas and implementing those ideas.

Cons

People tend to do their own thing, not a lot cross pollination.

Advice to Management

So far I don't have any issues the way the company is being run. I think some hard choices had to be made and they where made. Continue the open lines of communication.

    Pros

    Mirapoint's products are sold as an appliance - which is good.

    Cons

    Competing with entrenched competition Microsoft Exchange - not a very good place to be in.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out your strategy for competing against Microsoft.


  2. Don't expect much from its management team

    Pros

    Most of the individual contributors are smart and talented folks. They are nice to work with and want to be successful.

    Cons

    A few glaring weak points in senior management meant the company lacked vision. Many folks were frustrated by management's insistence on milking past markets rather than strategically positioning the company for future business opportunities. Perhaps Mirapoint recognizes the weakness of its management team. When last I checked they don't even have bios up for their managemetn team on the company website. Who is their management team? What kind of statement is that when management does not put its name on the door

    Advice to Management

    Let someone else run the show before all your talented employees and mangers leave for greener pastures. You can only milk the same cow for so long.
