    Pros

    Very flexible work environment with relatively low workload stress. A lot of freedom in day-to-day work. Still staffed by good people at the ground level.

    Cons

    Work environment has slipped since the last re-org (from groups by product to groups by function). Some groups are mired in contention over which group is really in charge. Products that aren't growing aren't providing growth opportunities for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refocus on the fundamentals - find problems customers will pay us to solve and solve them.

    Living in the past, running the company on a shoestring with a dis-functional leadership team.

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here...

    Cons

    Low salaries, no opportunity for advancement, poorly developed software solutions, management team that is not open to new ideas, micro-management from the top down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes. When you speak of operating under the guise of best practices, you need to realize that employees that have been in the company for 30 years have no sense of best practices. Open up the door to new ideas and insights before you tank the company with your controlling silo's and your micro-management.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
