Pros

A growing company with a lot of opportunities for career advancement. I see a lot of the employees moving to better positions and different departments. A fun group of people and everyone has a good time.

Cons

No stock options for employees. Surprising for a growing tech company.

Advice to Management

Stock options. Your employees would be so excited about it!

    Pros

    - Great group of people who care about their work
    - Interesting ecommerce solution
    - Innovative idea in the early 2000s
    - Great location on the central coast

    Cons

    - Management is more focused on growing sales/marketing than development/design/testing
    - Developers have very little input on the product being developed
    - Steep learning curve, System has very little documentation/testing/training
    - Lacking culture, Teams don't interact and people don't know each other
    - Hard to grow since company structure is very flat
    - Slow moving and system could be recreated by any large company with resources

    Advice to Management

    - Product needs simplified and old features need to be reworked or retired
    - Need to focus on 20% of clients who bring in 80% of the revenue
    - Stop signing small shops with no sales, Wasted time selling/building/marketing
    - Only create new features that add value for all clients
    - Work on company culture and employee perks
