Advice to ManagementAdvice

Present a clear direction going forward. Provide a product road map that engineering can design to.

    Pros

    Happy with pay and work/home balance. Break room snacks and coffee. Have time to dig in and learn new things.

    Cons

    Hard to tell where the company is going. Over the last year, plenty of wasted effort. Decision making process isn't clear. Lots of false starts.

    Product architectures look more like computer science projects than experience-based, realistic approaches. Every new product is a rewrite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the building for a week. Figure out where you want to be in 3 years. Plot a series of small steps to get there, each of which allow direction changes without starting back at the beginning. Then get into the habit of reviewing it every quarter. Change is OK, but throwing away effort is not.

    While you're finding your direction, keep your engineers active on short term projects. Stop wasting their work. It is very demoralizing.

    Pros

    You don't have to work too hard, easy to balance work with the rest of your life.

    Cons

    The company has no direction, it can't stay on one path for more than a week. Its like you're whipped back and forth every week in a different direction. The company tries to juggle twenty different things and ends up missing on all of them.

    The average employee is below industry average, which makes it easy to be in the upper echelon here. A lot of people do very little.

    You also feel like you're never getting the real story when Mr Reedy talks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start your search for a new career - I'm looking for mine!
