Pros

* Dynamic environment.

* Responds quickly to changes in environment.

* Aggressively pursuing new product opportunities, while maintaining health and strength of the core product.

* Lots of promoting from within. Good opportunities for advancement.

* Relaxed and friendly working environment.

* Benefits are in line with those offered by much larger companies.

* Especially during this economic downturn, SmartDraw's stability is very valuable to employees.

Cons

* Communication between departments is a frequently-heard complaint. Then again, nobody wants to sit through a ton of meetings, either.

* Very strong and active CEO can sometimes leave management feeling somewhat hampered in decision making.

    Pros

    Small size means you get to know everyone pretty well and you have a good insight into where the company is going.
    The potential for career growth in the marketing area is also nice.
    Casual environment is a plus.

    Cons

    Incompetent senior management.
    Little respect and/or gratitude for employees.
    No real appreciation for customers.

    Advice to Management

    Some members of management are constantly finger pointing to cover up the fact that they are contributing nothing useful to the company - time to clean up the trophy wives.

    Pros

    Everyone sees the sales and how well the company is doing. People work together towards goals set by management. The health benefits are very good and the employer contribution is very generous. Everyone pulls their own weight and is very good at what they do or they don't stick around.

    Cons

    Culture is probably a bit stiff and it is a very quiet office. Not a lot of drama at all.

    Advice to Management

    The company has the ability to be a leader and execute. However, the overall strategy has been meandering at best. Management needs to pick a winning strategy and the troops will follow.
