Pros

Executives give ample recognition Flexibility of hours and working from home Higher pay than average Fun culture Challenging work Mentorship Stock options

Cons

It is a really long commute for me. It takes an hour and a half each way in traffic. There is a lot of hard work to be done.

Advice to Management

Maintain a culture of little politics and high productivity.

    Pros

    - The most professional, highly skilled and experienced teams that I have ever worked with, hands down - Huge technological first mover advantage - Open office environment with access to all team members at all times - Support and understanding at all levels - Great work/life mix - Consistent positive team building activities - Good employee interactivity inside and outside of work. - Everyone at Xignite are true workaholics, must be an inherent personality trait to succeed - I personally LOVE working at Xignite, after a year, Im still excited for every day, which helps

    Cons

    - None really, a great place for the right personality type - must be a highly skilled workaholic - everyone is 150% dedicated to Xignite, must share the same dedication to grow - The Financial Data segment is not the most exciting, but Xignite is the one spark of excitement in the space. - Its challenging to make global financial data "sexy", but the delivery model is truly unique, a saving grace.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep up the good work, don't lose sight of what makes Xignite a great place to work: openness, support, teamwork, innovation and dedication on all levels.


  2. Not the "hottest" product, but definitely a market niche that is disruptive

    Pros

    - Small company so changes you'd recommend are definitely heard and have a great chance of being implemented - Great market potential since main competitors' technology isn't flexible - CEO is fair and an expert in the financial services industry - web services plays huge in the current "cloud computing" topics

    Cons

    - mainly transactional sales - the product isn't "hot" like CRM or enterprise social networking - product can be "commoditized" - b/c it's small, longevity in current economic climate could be a factor (as w/any small start-up)

    Advice to Management

    somehow make the product more "sexy"???
