    Pros

    Seems like a cooperative, innovative, friendly place at first...but that's only an illusory first impression! Not many pros once you actually get past the first week.

    Cons

    Ambivalent management that throws staff under the bus to protect their own skins, pressure to make unrealistic quota/pipeline numbers, absolutely no support from managment, failure to adhere to company's own stated values. Low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up, care about people, actually manage, don't play so many politics, too much focus on maintaining public image of company while operations and profits are really under-performing.
