Nice employees but horrible management by the owners

Pros

Pretty location with a leading edge product, although software quality control was a huge issue.

Cons

Owners treat employees horribly, always looking over their shoulders and expecting the worst of everybody. It's a huge red flag when a vast majority of a 25+ year old company's employees have been there for 2 years or less. Their rate of employee turnover should tell you something is wrong with this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sell the company and let experienced management take over

    Pros

    They need people so badly you'll likely be able to get a job here without perfect qualifications. Use what you learn (on the job, there's no support for paid training) in a field that can be hard to break into and get a better job with it in a couple years.

    Cons

    Senior management gives middle management no say in how things are run. Middle management is just a tool for the executives to use so they don't have to interact directly with employees.

    There's no career path. Unless someone gets fired or quits you won't get a promotion. Fortunately that happens a lot since there's a close to 30% turnover per year at the company.

    Pay is good for the area, but mediocre for the field. Expect frequent reminders about "not decorating your cubicle unless it's pre-approved" or "not using the executive fridge"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe get a consultant to help you see outside your bubble? I don't know if management cares enough to do anything. It certainly didn't feel like it to me.

    Pros

    Vermont is a pleasant location to work; good software

    Cons

    completely disorganized company; treats employees as hostages; be prepared to stay where you are at in your career since the company doesn't believe training is necessary. Stay away from this company.
