    Pros

    Great technology, lots of smart people and a good work life balance. Compensation in line with industry averages. Good career opportunities.

    Cons

    The company was obviously too technology focused to the detriment of the bottom line. There were some prima- donna engineers who thought it was all about them

    Advice to Management

    Too late - now it's in Oracle and going downhill

  2. Good work culture but the overall management needs better execution
