Pros

Great product, some very good people and plenty of work to do. Creativity and IQs run very high at PSI.

Cons

If you aren't in the 'favorites' group you are going nowhere. They aren't looking for people who tell them how it really is. They want "yes men". If you are a ladder climbing, backstabbing, finger pointing, guru of nothing but self promotion this is the place for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a good, hard look at the quality of people who have walked away in the last two years. They left because they didn't fit the culture of arrogance and hubris. They were people who cared about others and Imagenow. Not everyone lobby's vocally for the promotion; some people actually work for it. Recognize them.

    Pros

    Growing company

    Cons

    Salary are sub par
    Benefits are not comparable to other companies of similar size in the area
    401K matching is terrible
    Lower management lacks experience
    lack of career development opportunities
    lack of a career path
    lack of personal growth opportunities
    Management likes to play favorites and outcasts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall the direction the company is heading as a whole looks good, but there are some serious challenges that the company must undertake in order to transform from a small software shop to a mature public organization. Management would be smart to secure the best talent at the company by reviewing salaries and compensation in all positions. There is a risk of high turn over (mass brain drain) with the talent if the local job market improves!

    Pros

    Relaxed environment with challenging problems. Small company with lots of opportunities where you can find a project that best suits your interests. You can work on lower levels of implementation, or higher level business logic. Great developers with lots of knowledge, especially valuable for a young developer to learn what software development is about, I learned a lot.

    Cons

    Salary scale relatively low compared to the local competitors, this got fixed in recent years. Kansas. Parties can be conceived as cons but mostly a fun, family atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Get rid of the people that do not contribute. Keep focus on what made this company successful.
