Pros

Co-Workers are pretty decent to work with.
Flexible schedule - Work from home some days. Not a 9 - 5 job.
Ability to work with decent technologies.

Cons

No Raises.
Lack of direction.
No Strategic Focus.
Long hours.
Benefits are mediocre.
No training for staff or management. Serena's approach to new hires is to drop you in the deep end and hope you know how to swim. I never even had an orientation.

Advice to Management

Consolidate, too many mangers. Lead. Have realistic expectations. Get out of your box. Find a focus and a direction for the company.

    Pros

    If you want soda. They have free soda.

    Cons

    Serena has a pretty boring product line. Definitely feels like work. Management moves slow.
