    Pros

    Good tools are available Some of the people are smart and can be relied upon. Plenty of opportunities for professional growth. Yoga classes onsite

    Cons

    Disfunctional middle managers Lack of long term vision in the company that results in constant changes in direction Poor communication culture - it is impossible to get a response to an email No consistent development process

    Advice to Management

    Decide which direction you want to move the company and keep the direction. Currently the company is jumping from one extreme to the other.


  2. Turn the ship around Real!

    Pros

    - good location - flexible - work hard and it's recognized

    Cons

    - management's eyes were off the ball. Contract employees were pillaging the place while they focused on stemming the flow.

    Advice to Management

    - focus in before you focus out, but do it fast
