Pros

If you do your work well, opportunities for interesting work in new projects will always come up.

Cons

Management has changed often in the past 5 years, so vision is not as clear as it once was.

    Pros

    Not a lot of pressure. Everyone is very laid back. Few policies, no procedures. If you are a sales rep, you are golden!

    Cons

    Few people are invested in the success of the company so it is hard to get excited about coming in to work. No HR function to speak of. Few good information systems and no IT support.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that it takes more than sales reps and programmers to run the company.

    Pros

    - Good work and life balance with WFH days
    - Benefits are just fine
    - Stable job for the people settled for long-time

    Cons

    - Flat revenues
    - Same old products, no innovation and no focus
    - Management talks more about the new products and none of them made $$$
    - No encouragement for new ideas
    - Fat travel budget

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to come up with new ideas and new sparks. Sparks in words are not enough.
