Pros

Interesting work. Great people. Excellent salary.

Cons

Too many unnecessary meetings. Lack of software engineering discipline in the past has led to a hodgepodge of technical solutions.

    Pros

    If you work hard you can advance very quickly. They give everyone an equal opportunity to get promoted if your sales are high.

    Cons

    Sometimes sales people can be cut throat, and if you get stepped on management doesn't really care as long as product is being sold by someone.

    Advice to Management

    Every sales person is management material, and just because a sales person isn't selling great doesn't mean they aren't management material.

    Pros

    Good customer service. Good money.

    Cons

    This is the most negative working environment I have ever experienced. Poor, poor management with no positive reinforcement ever. Any simple mistake (and you will make a couple because on the job training is minimal) is treated with contempt and disgust. Public humiliation by management is a daily occurrence, with absolutely no recognition of a job done well.

    Advice to Management

    Be kind. Take some classes on how to properly manage employees.
