Pros

Objectively speaking, the company has a nice portfolio of managed services that are on par or better than the competition. The culture is good - sales org is a lot of fun and good work atmosphere. As are the service teams.

Cons

Dysfunctional in the delivery and ops side of the house.

Advice to Management

Get real about financials. Company needs to invest into R&D to mature it's product set and get to market more quickly. Also needs to focus on profitability - or at least have a plan for it.

    Pros

    The atmosphere of the business is very friendly and comfortable. It is a complex business model, so it is always a challenge to keep making yourself better.

    Cons

    There are a lot of employees, so it is easy to get caught up in the mix and get lost in all the commotion. If you are not willing to learn, the pace of this business will pass you up.

    Advice to Management

    Make more of a connection with your subordinates and make them feel like they are a useful part of the team.
