Pros

In a relevant, growing industry

Moving from risky reliance on carrier partners to a more diverse mix of revenue sources

Good cultural changes taking place. Slowly weeding out the people who only say, "No, it can't be done"

Good work atmosphere and hours. People work late when they're a little behind, but no continuous 12-hour-day death marches

Great new facilities, with gym, game room, some catered lunches, etc

Cons

Talented employees are still leaving. Lots of infighting over scarce talent. Some engineers have to split their attention among 3+ teams

Software development and deployment methodology stuck in the '90s. Waterfall. Over-emphasis on process, planning and documentation

Salaries are average, but equity compensation is all but nonexistent. We ought to be handing out stock like candy to motivate people to stay

Advice to Management

Please do what it takes to retain our top talent

    Pros

    Some great engineers and plenty of good people. Been a good place to make friends and work on interesting stuff

    Cons

    No vision, No execution, Dependance on china, people run pet projects like its no one's business, no career dev, poor/avg salary, no incentives, very low morale and lack of enthusiasm. In a crowded space dominated by the biggies Google, apple , microsoft and maybe amazon soon..

    Advice to Management

    Shake things up, have laser focus, execute at all levels, energize with purpose and passion and not by putting competition down.
