A breath of fresh air!

Product Manager (Current Employee) Christchurch (New Zealand)

ProsI came to SLI Systems after working for a very large bricks and mortar corporate for the last 7 years - and haven't looked back once. I don't say this lightly because with a mortgage and young family it was a big decision for me to decide to leave the security of my last job behind, but after one morning at SLI I knew I had made the right decision.

There is a real sense of dynamism:
* Innovation, initiative and self management are not just tolerated but encouraged.
* The client base is always pushing us to do new and exciting things.
* Our competitors look to us for ideas so they are always playing catch up
* Management are always making the latest technology available e.g. Google Glass.

At the same time SLI also has the atmosphere of a small family business:
* Staff are allowed to bring their pets into the office
* Despite the recent growth everyone still finds time to sit down together for morning tea
* The VP of Engineering is always buying some new gadget to install in the office

ConsThe only cons I can think I don't get to see many of my colleagues and clients on a daily basis because they are scattered all over the word from San Jose, to New York, Tokyo, London & Melbourne - but on the bright side they are great places to go and visit!

Advice to Senior ManagementIf I was to offer management any words of advice it would be this: "Don't Change!"

Once you go public there is the inevitable restrictions that come as a company increases in size, so my only advice would be don't let this stifle the innovative spirit that has contributed to your success to date.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
