    Pros

    New technology, interesting work. Many internal teams are good to work with.

    Cons

    While upper management continues to get obscene bonuses and salaries, the peons in the field are expected to work 60-80 week. No overtime for most positions, no comp time. Constantly told to work faster, get more revenue recognition - they think if you can implement a project in 120 days, you can cut that to 90 and if you cut it to 90, you can cut it to 60 and come to think of it, get it done in 30 days. You'll get lectures from the CEO during quarterly meetings telling you you're special and appreciated, BUT sales are never high enough, and you're never really giving it your all. then you read that the marketing manager (marketing!) is pulling in over $7 million salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of people out in the field working their butts off for you. Salaries are decent, but not when you factor in the number of hours you have to work. Managements seems completely and totally out of touch with what actually goes on with the worker bees.
