    Pros

    It is challenging environment.
    Most of the people who work here are wonderful!
    The company is in a convenient location.

    Cons

    Salaries are grossly below industry norms.
    The management either overly micromanages or is completely hands off offering no support.
    The company lacks true direction and a solid product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off of peoples' backs and stop riding them like they're 5 years old.
    Offer support and constructive feedback.
    Pay people what they're worth or they're going to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    glassdoor.com, payscale.com, salary.com are present just for you to keep yourself update on median payscale in the area.
    pay employees better and let them do their work.
    concentrate on building a product and not on politics
