Pros

-Excellent remote connectivity makes for good work/life balance. -Company has cut a lot of dead wood and streamlined many processes. -Diverse and Talented co-workers -Better than average starting salary

Cons

-Strong internal focus deters revenue growth -Archaic corporate culture -Ceaseless good old boy politics; not what you know but who you know -Top heavy, ineffective senior management -Must negotiate a great starting salary as increases are practically non-existent -Constant cost cutting and layoffs; company has cut roughly 50% of jobs in the past 6 years except at the executive level

Advice to Management

Current CEO was hired to make the company viable again, no question that he succeeded. New leadership with proven skill in growing revenue is now needed. Until then the company remains in constant crisis mode, promoting no career growth for the average employee due to constantly changing (or non-existent) goals and objectives.

    Pros

    Great staff on customer site

    Cons

    Exec mgmt too internally focused rather than on the Customer needs. This is the primary reason for not winning new contracts. Lack of leadership direction.

    Advice to Management

    To move the company forward, Need to reduce ineffective exec mgmt . Too much unnecessary, No added value mgmt. has resulted in non competitive rates.

    Pros

    Perfect for work / life balance

    Cons

    Platform to enable employee communication at the developer level across projects is very poor. The focus is always on the Management and other processes. Being an IT company I feel the focus should be on developer focused practices.

    Advice to Management

    Give developers at least 10% of their time to do experiments and research. This is will help build systems faster and probably smartly. Every developer should share their 10% research time with their team, no matter how insignificant it is.
