Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hiring more PMs to take lessen the work and stress loads on management would be a real benefit for all employees.

    The CEO with Napoleonic complex is a verified idiot! RUN, do not walk in the opposite direction.

    Pros

    Multi-cultural and some smart engineers who enjoy masochism

    Cons

    Besides the great technology in the field of info-security by some original engineers (long departed) there is really nothing to the company that would make resemble a modern technology startup. Everything revolves around the "short little Napoleon" CEO and his inflated ego and preposterous sense of self. The valley is replete with stories about why with the greatest technologies in previous years, he cannot make any company public and always ends up selling the company or the technology as an exit strategy. The guy is simply ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is only one person with decision making power...the CEO. Advice to him: commit suicide! You are not a human being, but a caricature of one...like a silly villain from a Johnny Quest episode (the children's animation series)

    I have been working at Nextlabs full-time

    Pros

    Work on something meaningful - challenging business problems impacting large companies and new category defining products
    Collegial work environment, flat and apolitical organization
    Merit based performance and promotion process

    Cons

    Greater transparency around business performance beyond the management team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Making individual contributors in the trenches realize the value they're providing. Since the software is sold to large companies and not a household name, it can be hard for a person not involved in the sales and marketing process to understand their value.
