Mixed: great opportunities to develop new concepts and products; unfortunate tendency to discard and repeat sometimes.

Pros

Mobile device support is a line of business with excellent growth potential. That's what InnoPath does, and the company has enjoyed some success with it. There are a few major customers.

The CEO, John Fazio, is a great fan and booster, and is by nature InnoPath's best salesman.

The engineers and other staff are very good. When some layoffs were necessary at the beginning of this year, some excellent people were let go; however, it wouldn't have been easy to choose better, as there weren't really any slackers or marginal performers to be found.

Engineering has been reorganized into interdisciplinary vertical groups that are beginning to adopt some agile practices. This leads to easier collaboration than in the past, when QA, mobile, server, database, etc. were more separated.

Cons

Due to a necessary transition in its business model, InnoPath is facing leaner budgets than in recent years, and has shrunk a bit. This is hard on the morale of those remaining, and is in contrast to many local technology companies that are growing this year. It may be a bit harder to compete for needed talent under these circumstances.

InnoPath does some innovative things (it's in the name, after all), but often seems to be a bit late getting started. The strategic role of marketing may not be emphasized enough (something that's true of many young tech companies, actually).

Advice to Management

InnoPath needs to be more agile, and therefore less "top-down" if it's going to achieve its full potential. Teams and individual contributors need to be allowed to make decisions without constantly checking with management--even if the decisions may not always be optimal. Otherwise, this will probably remain a small, if viable, company.

    The link between marketing feedback and backend research could be better.
    Still under the way to find the balance between innovation and money making

    Pros

    not much to say, compensation, benefit are industry average.

    Cons

    I'm very sure Glassdoor gets attention from Innopath's HR, once there is a negative (1.0, 2.0) review comes out, there will be a very positive (4.0, 5.0) to offset it. They are working so hard on it.

    - high management has no vision
    - Turn a tech startup as a family business
    - lack of tech leadership

    Advice to Management

    leave, give the company a chance
