Pros

Server technology is good to work with in the fact that you can have a dramatic impact on the product and company. Ownership are good business people and are very sales-centric, which results in double digit increases in revenues year over year even in a bad economy.

Cons

Because its a small company, there are still a lot of growing pains occuring. Things are tough for the engineers in the way that the company is very sales-centric. They pride themselves on being fast to react to a customer's needs. That is fine, but that is reactionary. Instead, they need to have better marketing and market knowledge and be ahead of the curve. This puts a lot of pressure on the engineering staff to make product fast and make it perfect the first time. Then, you hear about how everybody needs to do more. It just rubs the wrong way when you work hard and don't get recognized for the work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please be realistic in projects, communicate better, plan better and be fair about giving credit where credit is due to employees.

    Pros

    Everyone is happy. I couldn't believe it when I started working here only because it seemed so utopia-like. But its true. I've never worked at a job before where everyone seemed so comfortable, happy, at-peace, etc.

    Cons

    I can't think of a single con.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Exciting industry, great health insurance, nice extras around the holidays, frequent company outings, agreeable hours.

    Cons

    Preemptive solutions are traded in for rushed reactions for sales numbers and every department underneath feels the pressure. Instead of running a profitable business, upper management has decided to push as much product out the door; which would be fine if there was enough properly trained people to support it. The rapid growth stretched resources thin for everyone. Turnover rate was high in several departments. Opportunities to climb are rarely presented, and favorites are often chosen over those deserving. Annual reviews are typically 6 months late.
    It wasn't always like this. Sad to see such great potential falling apart. Nobody even said hello anymore when you walked by.
    You will be hard pressed to find an employee who wasn't/isn't looking for another job every day.
    Sales and management positions are the only jobs worth the trouble and salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reignite the flame that was there not long ago. Inspire people to work together again and not focus on saving their own hide when it hits the fan. Some need to be held to higher standards and carry some accountability. Most others just want to be recognized for the pride and quality in their work.
