Good place to work, however, it's a small company with lack of training resources and not good company benefits.

Pros

Need to always take initiative or else nothing gets done by management.

Cons

Lack of structure, lack of training resources, too many obstacles regarding resources and systems access. ALOT of outsourcing makes it difficult to do your job. In other words, departments being outsourced, etc.Employees do not feel that their jobs are safe and feel confident about their knowledge due to lack of initial training regarding product.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be structure and a dedicated training resources in each product. Management does not understand how systems work. They make decisions without this knowledge and grunt worker get burnt in the process. Employees do not feel that their jobs are safe.

    Pros

    Leaders, managers and employees are committed to transforming the way work is done in this organization. Revitalized focus on quality, process enhancements, efficiency, productivity and hiring top talent.

    Cons

    Company is going through an enormous transformation - the velocity is intense and there's no place to hide. People who are not top performers with cutting edge skills will not survive. There's very little slack in the system and everyone needs to "pull their weight". Burnout is a risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course on process efficiencies and don't let up on demands for high quality work. Build some extra capacity into the system to give your best employees a chance to re-charge.

    Pros

    People, Product and sense of accomplishment.
    Able to impact the bottom line directly due to size of the organization

    Cons

    Work life balance...working on it. Lack of investment in training. Need to do a better job at holding people accountable.
    Need more transparency
    Adding a number of high level roles, need more hands on deck to execute the work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the people- training
    Hold people accountable
    Hire additional individual contributors to execute the work.
