    Struggling to grow and distinguish in a commodity business

    Pros

    Some employees are hard working. Good first job as there is little clear definition of roles and accountability so you would get lots of varied experiences. The management has tried and struggled to define cultures and values that are meaningful, but at least they are trying.

    Cons

    Struggling to define the growth path of the company
    Management has been doing it so long in a vacuum they have lost perspective on what a healthy growing company looks like.
    Many co-workers phoning in their efforts on the job (including senior management) which creates a bad the work ethic which is very sporadic across the organization.
    Biggest issue is that sales are transactional and the product is a commodity so it is hard to differentiate so cost is the only place to stand apart from the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a stronger management team that is driven to help the organization grow and challenge the people to work harder and smarter. Use the tools in place more effectively and efficiently and recognize when you have a bad seed in the organization and deal with it rapidly.

    Pros

    If you live to San mateo or work remotely then its a easy company to work for - There are some good and talented individual employees especially in engineering, product management and sales but lack of vision has hurt this company.

    Cons

    too many - incompentent leadrship. Commodity low margin transactional web services. Enterprise solution mostly a give away. Ample opportunity to slack if you buddy buddy with incompetent leaders. No Vision by leadership.
