Pros

In a software startup environment, ideas flow freely. People are less concerned with procedure and rules and more willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.

Cons

On the flip side, there are few procedures or rules. Management changes its mind on company direction often, and when that happens, heads roll.

Advice to Management

My advice would be to pick a direction and stick with it. I realize that life as a startup is a life of danger and volatility, but in order to keep employees productive and not constantly fearing for their safety, some sort of assurances must be made.

    Pros

    Friendly vibe with minimal red tape and bureaucracy, talented workers and a good development flow for the product.

    Cons

    Not many that I can think of. It's a crowded space, so we'll see what the future holds in terms product development, but Strands has a unique business model that has the potential to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great people. You will be always learning new stuff. Keeps some of the startup culture it used to have when it started.

    Cons

    You will work with big old-fashioned banking industry.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the bad eggs.
