Pros

A large percentage of the employees are kind, interesting, engaging, smart people of good character. Your role will not be limited to the "traditional" tasks associated with your job title - you will have the opportunity (necessity) to reach beyond those and contribute in other areas also.

Cons

You will not be rewarded or even acknowleged for exceptional performance. Management has been in total chaos for at least 5 years and remains so today. They do not have a plan - nor do they communicate decisions effectively to employees. There is no accountability at the Executive level - instead, their responsibilities are pushed down to the middle managers without commensurate authority to make decisions or produce outcomes. Getting a policy decision that is comprehensible is impossible. Senior Management will not remove barriers to progress, nor attend to the fundamentals necessary to enable middle and lower level employees to achieve good outcomes. Management will violate your trust, as was done with the December 2009 and June 2010 bonuses, which were not paid - and there was no communication of this intent by management until they were already overdue. The executive team simply does not respect employees, nor any contract that is signed. Getting management to deliver what has been promised in a contract with a customer is nearly impossible, so you will always be stuck between an exasperated and hostile customer and an incompetent, irresponsible Executive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a new vocation. Your inexperience, cronyism, inadequate self-discipline, failure to plan, and woefully inadequate idea of what communication is have destroyed what could be a fantastic organization and an admirable business.

    I worked at XAP full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pros? Really? You must be joking!!

    Cons

    A lot of slackers work at this company 90%) and they smooch off of the few that work hard and keep the company floating. Fire the slackers please and change the Management.. The new management is worse than the old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up the board. They have no clue how to run a business or whom to hire to run it.
