  1. Aggressive, action oriented and exciting company. Middle management sucks! Not much innovation here but great execution!

    Pros

    Good Pay. Stable Job. Aggressive and action oriented environment. Executive management is great.

    Cons

    Middle management sucks! Too many VPs and too much title inflation in the company. Product development is not assimilating the acquisitions well, while the sales and other sides of the business are doing a much better job handing acquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    The company is getting too big and the management pool is very poor. HR department does nothing but very basic stuff. People development is very poor. Good management does not exist in the company anymore. Apps product development organization has grown like weed with no justification. If software is commoditizing, we cannot see that in the way software development is managed in the company. If you want to aspire your company to be managed like GE, you better start reading Welch's and Bossidy's books because i cannot see any trace of those best practices in the company.

  2. Skywire Software is a great place to work.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for advancement exist at Skywire Software, especially due to acquisitions that have been made over the last couple of years. Skywire has excellent Executive Leadership, great co-workers, great working environment, fast growing. Recently sold to Oracle, I am now looking forward to growing with a new company.

    Cons

    Long hours and not really enough work and life balance. A lot of travel is required in my position. The travel policy is not that great, but probably compares with other companies of this size.

    Advice to Management

    Executive managment, keep doing what you're doing!
