Overall, a good Company for those that can perform and tolerate the nonsense.

Pros

Good product, great people in the trenches, market leadership position of strength, well positioned for a long run.

Cons

Too many big egos in senior management that do not add value. Compensation has been reduced in order to drive stock value. Top performers will not stay for the long term as a result. Professional Services leadership only interested in 50% margins and not customer success. Must learn to bite your tongue to survive.

Advice to Management

Act like you've been to a big company before. Start sharing the wealth with those who deliver. Recognize which leaders are anything but.

    Pros

    Interesting Product and some smart people left (but they're nearly all gone or retired)

    Cons

    Abusive management - You are either flogged to get work done, or you become one of those who do the flogging Too much offshoring - US Engineering mostly serves to compensate for poor quality of India output. Uninformed decisioning - your feedback is not welcomed, your only job is to make your boss look good. The "new" offices are pretty on the surface, but reveal the underlying heavily politicized pecking order

    Advice to Management

    There is a lot of deadwood in senior management costing the company heavily - cut them out, and give the rank and file time to recover and grow.

    Pros

    Owner has vision. Sales teams treated with appropriate respect. Technology is sound. Management has an open door and is accommodating.

    Cons

    Long sales cycles. Comp plan is impossible to figure out, and it's tough to make your number. They don't pay office expenses for remote employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more up front during the hiring process. Don't pinch pennies. Make the application more business-friendly by utilizing UI specialists instead of developers.
