Pros

Flexible work hours as long as you don't slow down your department.
People are generally cordial and very helpful if you ask for help.

Cons

Must be flexible. There is an unspoken rule to answer emails during off hours to "keep the ball rolling." Makes it hard not to think about work when you should not be.

Must be self motivated and resourceful to work here. No mentors so you are on your own. It's somewhat still in start-up mode so you must wear different hats. It can be stressful at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

ooma is an awesome product. It's cost affective but provides the best with the most features of any VoIP product. Just give it time for everyone to know about its greatness. Just keep doing the cheap but straight forward adverts and pass the savings to your loyal employees instead. Maybe as bonuses?
