    Pros

    Light work.
    Good location and equipments
    Good pay

    Cons

    Nothing to do
    They change direction of entire projects every other week
    Company in general is going down. Losing money on sales
    A lot of people have no passion for what they do. A lot of projects have been delayed because of that.
    It's easy to do nothing and get away with it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is done. Maximum 2 more years to bankruptcy.

    Pros

    You get to work with some bright, talented people here, if you are lucky. Specialized user base and fairly large amount of data to be mined.

    Cons

    Management has no idea about company's future. Company has deep technology debt to be fixed and still creating more as it goes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on building best reading app instead of wasting time and money on devices.
