Pros

Speakeasy is a machine that turns smart people into talented people. After a year or two you will likely be far more advanced at your skill set.

Cons

It's very hard to get promotions and salary increases at Speakeasy. You really need to play hard ball (preferably when you get in) in order to get any kind of a raise. As a result, many of the highly talented staff have been leaving.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on development of culture and creating a fun atmosphere. Also try to outline a clear path that indicates how to get promoted.

    Pros

    Speakeasy has a lot of growth opportunity for eager talented employees who want to move up and gain experience.

    Cons

    Employees are forced to live in a constant fire drill environment where every task is your top priority.

    Management/Product are quick to jump on the latest bandwagon that looks like it will sell, but rarely follows through with plans to successfully support/maintain them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on the core products
    Listen to your front line reps, they are your best source for information for customer wants/needs
    Heavily investing in the training department is an investment in your customer's future
